Scholar Specific, Session 3: Osteopathic Recognition Curriculum
With single GME accreditation system, there is a need to develop scholarly work within osteopathic training programs. Although many forms of scholarly work are available, the "Scholar Series" focuses on the skills needed to create a scholarly environment and help meet residents' program requirements (IV.B.1. The curriculum must advance residents’ knowledge of the basic principles of research, including how research is conducted, evaluated, explained to patients, and applied to patient care.)
In addition to residents, attending physicians and medical students will find the series valuable. The videos can also be used by residency directors for faculty development within your institution or just to learn more about the research process.
Scholar Specific was released in December 2017 with video 1. Two additional video workshops were added in Fall 2018. There are three videos in this set.
