Research in Family Medicine
Students will develop an individual course of instruction with
input from the research director. The format for the course will be
worked out with the instructor(s). Readings will encompass both
research methods and the student's area of research interest within
family medicine. Such areas may include issues in community
medicine, family dynamics, health behavior, cultural aspects of
health and illness, or specific ambulatory health problems.
