This course consists of a series of highly interactive activities designed to familiarize Academic Medicine Scholars with the entire research process. Academic Medicine Scholars individually lead discussions of peer reviewed journal articles on neuromusculoskeletal and related topics, write NIH style grant proposals, peer-review scientific manuscripts, and give presentations on their own research projects for peer evaluation.

MMNM 730 Advanced Concepts of Clinical Research 3 College of Osteopathic Med
The purpose of this course is to provide training for students in activities pertinent to an academic physician, with a focus on clinical research. The course should prepare students to critically review medical literature, lead journal clubs, prepare clinical topic and case presentations appropriate for activities at University teaching hospitals (tumor board, grand rounds, etc ...), and to discuss issues pertinent to clinical research at an advanced level.

MMNM 826 Applications in Teaching and Learning 1 College of Osteopathic Med
