The Military Primary Care Research Network (MPCRN) promotes physician inquiry, discovery, and improvement to enhance patient care. Our leadership team is based at USU and we connect medical professionals at the 15 military family medicine residency training sites to promote collaborative scientific inquiry and physician improvement. We provide guidance in study design, statistical analysis, and editorial/publishing assistance for investigator-initiated original research. We can also facilitate networking and connections for individuals who would like to get involved with an upcoming or ongoing project, but don't have the time/experience to be a principal investigator.



MPCRN can provide additional help! Please contact us for questions or assistance with:

  • Consulting on new and ongoing research projects
  • Opportunities for disseminating research
  • Reviewing and editing support for publication and presentation submissions

We are excited to help support your Scholarly Activity journey. The ACGME requires that both residents and faculty participate in scholarly activities. Residents should complete two scholarly projects before residency graduation, and faculty are expected to average two activities every five years.

The step-by-step processes outlined are designed to help you initiate and complete a variety of evidence-based scholarly activities, whether your aim is to publish a Case Report, present a poster at a medical conference or develop an original research project.

Start by selecting one of two pathways. “General Scholarly Activity” follows a step-by-step process from creating your research question through selecting a final scholarship product. “Investigator-initiated Research” provides resources related to original research.
