SCHOLARLY ACTIVITY REQUIREMENT

Goal:
Each resident is required to complete a scholarly project during residency. The goals of this project are to:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to perform an in-depth, comprehensive, and scholarly literature search and analysis of the literature in a topic within or related to psychiatry, of interest to the resident
  2. Identify the potential clinical relevance of findings from research and the scientific literature
  3. Develop oral presentation and teaching skills
  4. Develop a written scholarly product, such as a case report, data-based article, review article, research proposal, curriculum, or report of a clinical continuous quality improvement (CQI) study

To accomplish these goals, each resident will work with a faculty advisor and prepare both: 1) an oral presentation for the Harborview Friday conference; and 2) a written report (as in 4, above). The faculty advisor will evaluate the resident's performance in achieving the goals and objectives of this project. Residents may collaborate on group projects, as long as each resident makes a substantial contribution to the project and meets the specific objectives listed below.

Specific Objectives:
Each resident will:

Knowledge

  • Conduct a comprehensive review of the literature relevant to a topic, clinical case, or research project.

Skills

  • Identify a topic area to review, a research project to participate in/complete, a clinical case appropriate for presentation and a case report (e.g. a novel presentation of an illness, diagnostic dilemma, unexpected outcome), or a CQI study to conduct on a clinical service.
  • Develop an oral presentation, including (as appropriate) a PowerPoint presentation, handouts, bibliography, articles for distribution, and/or other audiovisual materials (e.g. videotapes).
  • Effectively give an oral presentation, including a scholarly discussion of the topic, research, or issues raised by a clinical case.
  • Write a research paper, research proposal (e.g. grant or part of a grant), review article, annotated bibliography, case report and discussion, report of a CQI study, or curriculum.

Attitudes

  • Understand and appreciate the role of scholarship and critical review of the literature in improving one's clinical practice, in teaching, and/or in performing research.
