Scholarly Activity

Scholarly Activity

NHDFMR excels in a three-pronged framework for teaching excellent primary care and personal development. These are:

  • expanding the model of patient care,
  • expanding the model of team membership,
  • expanding the model of change management through a systems approach.

The [Systems] curriculum teaches skill development in these three areas throughout residency, while the clinic provides a learning laboratory to experientially trial these skills aimed at enhancing the patient-centered medical home, functioning in an interdisciplinary team, and improving quality gaps in care delivery and patient-team and inter-team relationships. At NHDFMR, we encourage engaging in scholarly activity to connect these three areas: how we teach, how we deliver care, and how we continue to strive for excellence. Engaging in scholarly activity forces us to reflect on what we are doing, analyze our models of teaching and clinical care, and engage in a dialogue with each other and with a broader community for the purpose of constant improvement.  

NHDFMR residents meet the ACGME requirement of participating in the production of at least two scholarly activities with the comprehensive support of a faculty member specifically appointed to the development of scholarly activity.

NHDFMR has a long tradition of scholarly activity production in these four areas of focus:

Expanding the Model of Patient Care

Incorporating the patient’s experience with illness in relation to one’s dimensions of personhood (according to Eric Cassell: personality, past, experiences, culture, roles, politics, ability to do things, body, secret life, transcendence). Prolonged illness threatens aspects of personhood and leads to suffering. Learning is one way to emerge from suffering, and can happen through the process of identifying and understanding a person’s illness experience.

Expanding the Model of Team Membership

Embracing the need to reframe all team members’ roles away from a hierarchal model towards an interdisciplinary and interdependent model, allowing for all members to be continual learners, to provide care for patients to the best of their skill set, and to embody the patient-centered medical home.
