Research in Family Medicine

Henry Ford Health System has a mission in patient care, education and research. The Department of Family Medicine participates in all three of
these areas as a full and equal partner with the other departments.

A requirement of the residency is to complete an academic project. This can be accomplished by finishing and presenting an Institutional Review Board approved research project, authoring a Clinical Inquiry I for the Family Medicine Information Network, submitting a grant to an outside agency for funding, publishing in a peer reviewed medical journal, or submitting an evidenced-based manuscript to American Family Physician.
