The interest group was initially intended for the Research Directors but will allow for all those with research interest and desire to fulfill leadership in their Departments to participate.
The objectives of the Research Directors Interest Group are to:
Use the results of the SAEM 2017 RDIG/EBHI led consensus process to draft and circulate a consensus document on the EM residency required scholarly activity.
Collaborate with the EBHI interest group, and work to have this consensus document on resident scholarly activity approved by the governing bodies of other relevant stakeholders and successfully submit the final document for journal publication.
