KCU Resident/Fellow Requirements:

All residents/fellows must adhere to the scholarly activity requirements set by the sponsoring institution. 

All residents/fellows will engage in monthly meetings with the KCU GME Coordinators of Scholarly Activity and Quality and Safety Education to receive education on research and patient safety/quality improvement. These meetings will facilitate the completion of a blended research/quality improvement project, which will culminate in the preparation of a poster that is presented at a local, regional, national, or international conference and/or the preparation of a manuscript suitable for submission to a peer-reviewed journal.

Before a resident/fellow successfully completes training at a KCU GME program, they must present a poster or submit a manuscript for publication. Furthermore, Family Medicine residents must complete a second scholarly activity project suitable for presentation or publication. Addiction Medicine fellows must also take a leadership or teaching role in educating other learners on addiction medicine.
