The planning committee for the Michigan Family Medicine Research Day invites submission of abstracts of original research pertinent to family medicine and primary care.  This annual event is designed to encourage and assist new researchers and scholars in family medicine, nursing and the behavioral sciences in a collegial atmosphere where we can all learn and exchange ideas that may improve patterns of practice and the health of patients under our care.

We welcome submission of abstracts on research, scholarly, and quality improvement projects. Research abstracts will focus on the collection, analysis and presentation of original data, either quantitative or qualitative.  Scholarly categories include case reports accompanied by a literature review* and curriculum development projects.  Quality improvement projects, particularly those with measureable patient outcomes, are encouraged.

Do you want expert feedback on a research concept?  Investigators with research concept may submit a two-page concept paper to an expert panel.  Selected investigators will make a five minute presentation to the expert panel.  The panel will discuss the concept with the investigator and audience for fifteen minutes.  The goal is to help the investigator move the concept into a fundable study and help others to understand how experts examine a study concept.  The expert panel will provide written comments.

The day will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude with an Awards Ceremony at 3:30 p.m.  Instructions for abstract submission are included with this announcement or contact:  Deb Richardson, Conference Assistant at 517-884-0400, or Lodging is available at the Brighton Courtyard by Marriott directly adjacent to the conference center.
