Student Family Medicine/ Primary Care Research Award
The need for capacity building in primary care research is well recognized. A recent report prepared by the AFMO Research Capacity Building Committee recognizes the need to mentor interested medical students. NAPCRG is originating this award to both recognize medical student research and by doing so promote family medicine/primary care research.
To recognize outstanding family medicine/primary care research performed by a medical student.
Designation of the Award
One award may be made by each department of family medicine. The NAPCRG Board suggests that each department create a committee to review medical student applications and make the award recommendation to the department chair. Note that NAPCRG does not select the honorees; departments tell NAPCRG headquarters who should be honored from their school. NAPCRG will supply the certificate that may be framed by the department if it elects to do so.
Please submit the name of your honoree to NAPCRG via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for preparation of the certificate. While some departments prefer to present these certificates at graduation ceremonies in the spring, you may honor your student at the time that makes the most sense for your department.
Contact Jill Haught, NAPCRG Operations Manager, via e-mail at email@example.com, via phone at 757-581-7459, with questions.
