Description

Objective: The objective of this project was to build an online resource that will help guide residents through their Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) scholarly activity requirement by providing guidelines, advice, and resources on publishing, presenting, and research. Methods: The Clinical Services Librarian first met with the Graduate Medical Education (GME) office to determine the needs of the residencies and clarify current ACGME requirements. Meetings were then set with representatives from the largest residencies to discuss how the scholarly activity requirement was currently being met and to collect resources. After these meetings the librarian began building an online resource in the LibGuides software for both residents and junior faculty. The Research and Scholarly Activity Guide combines practical advice with tips and tricks for completing projects. Sections include information on how to set up and where to print a poster, how to write an abstract, and how to submit articles to journals. Research resources help guide residents through the institutional review board process, finding a mentor, and identifying statistical expertise. Results: The Research and Scholarly Activity Guide was completed over the summer and introduced to new interns and returning residents during noon conferences and orientations. The guide was also presented at both the residency directors’ and residency coordinators’ monthly meetings. The guide was well received and comments and suggestions were incorporated were appropriate. Conclusions: The Research and Scholarly Activity Guide was available starting July 2018. The guide brings a number of disparate resources together easing residents’ road to completion of their scholarly activity requirement as well as assisting junior faculty with research endeavors. Residency directors and coordinators have expressed how much this guide will help their programs.
