One daunting issue that most primary care research entities face is to recruit and train more talented clinical researchers. What are some ideas we can share to overcome (or place a dent in) this barrier?
The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth
The Primary Care Research Institute is revolutionizing the approach to primary care research by developing collaborative partnerships within and outside the institution to improve the health and lives of the people of Texas through interdisciplinary and translational research and education. By blurring the lines between primary care and public health research, we can develop, study, and implement new research into clinical practice to better the lives of all people regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, or income.
The purpose of this blog is to function as a communication and dissemination modality for clinicians, researchers and our research participants.
As the director of the Primary Care Research Institute (PCRI) at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, I strive to provide a forum of communication among those interested and conducting primary care research. Although a practicing family physician, I have the joy of working with medical, public health, and basic science students at UNTHSC. My research focuses in the areas of health disparities, cardiovascular health, medication adherence, cancer screening, and patient-clinician communication. Thank you for viewing our blog!
