    bullet point  Scholarly Projects
     
     
    Research and Scholarly activity are integral to the practice of family medicine. The UPMC McKeesport Family Medicine Residency Program in accordance with the ACGME mandate to incorporate scholarly activity into the residency curriculum has wholeheartedly embraced this culture. The discovery of knowledge is critical to the continued growth and development of all family medicine physicians. Our goal is to improve patient care, medical education, population health through scholarly activity.


    Quality Improvement
    We participate in several regional and national quality improvement activities.

    The GO! Diabetes program provides a streamlined method for evaluating current patient care and achieving better processes by improving patient education and disease management.

    The IMPLICIT Network (Interventions to Minimize Preterm and Low birth weight Infants through Continuous Improvement Techniques) is a multi-center collaboration of family medicine residency programs that began in 2003 in order to educate family medicine residents and practicing physicians about primary prevention of low birth weight and preterm birth with a goal to reduce the rates of preventable prematurity.
    The Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians- Improving Performance In Practice Residency Collaborative teaches performance improvement and patient-centeredness in family medicine and internal medicine residency programs to improve patient outcomes in diabetes and cardiovascular care.


    Resident Projects
    Each resident is assigned a faculty mentor who can guide your interests and develop your project. Each 3rd year resident is required to present their project at our annual scholarly activity day. Each project is evaluated by a group of faculty members from within as well as outside of the residency program. We also encourage participation in local, regional and national forums to showcase the exciting projects completed during your residency. By developing skills and supporting scholarly activity in training, we aim to improve the quality, effectiveness, accessibility and sustainability of primary care throughout the country and abroad.
