Population Health and Scholarship


The Curriculum

We require both a community engagement project/participation, and scholarly activity.  We encourage residents to use their community engagement as the basis for their scholarly activity if possible, though that won't always work- and we don't want to discourage participation in community engagement.  


Please use the emailed link from Dr. Chanchien Parajon for your group-specific shared drive and your Deliverables folder.

Community Engagement is important for population health, and something we value highly in our department. It is a process of involving community members in designing, implementing, and evaluating solutions to problematic conditions they are affected by. This partnership makes use of a community's own resources and strengths. Such engagement or participation should stem from the needs and desires of the community.

For our purposes, community engagement can also be more loosely defined as our efforts to improve the health of our patients that occur outside the boundaries of our usual clinical work. The community itself can even be considered broadly: from the communities of our continuity clinics to communities of our patients that we work with elsewhere (i.e. our hospital services). 


Scholarly Activity entails contribution to knowledge available to the discipline of family medicine and/or its subspecialty fellowship areas.  


The ACGME guidelines for scholarly activity in Family Medicine can be found here.
