In the UMKC Department of Community and Family Medicine one of our program goals is to promote scholarly work for our residents, fellows and faculty. Before graduation our residents are required to do a research project, prepare a poster presentation and participate in Research Day in the spring. It is also strongly encouraged to present these projects in other venues and publish scholarly work whenever possible.
Scholarly work is not limited to the members of the educational programs of DCFM. All employees are encouraged to contribute to the goals of building a scholarly department.
