The Research Division of the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine incorporates 11 full-time faculty (3 clinicians, 8 non-clinicians) and 4 staff. Faculty members are involved in various research activities, most of which fall within the categories of primary healthcare practice-based research, community-engaged research (CEnR), translational dissemination and implementation (D&I) research, educational research and research on clinical decision-making.
The Division offers medical student electives in practice-based research and clinical decision-making, and a Family Medicine Summer Research Experience (FMSRE) for medical students after their first year of medical school. The Division also organizes a Journal Club for Family Medicine residents in the Oklahoma City residency program and runs the Clin-IQ program for its residents that allows them to participate in scholarly activity as part of their curriculum.
Members of the Division instruct Family Medicine residents in research methods, critical evaluation of clinical evidence, clinical interviewing, community medicine, and clinical decision making topics.
The Research Division works closely with the Oklahoma Physicians Resource/Research Network (OKPRN), a nationally acclaimed primary care practice-based research network with over 350 clinician members throughout Oklahoma and it is also linked to the activities of the Oklahoma Clinical and Translational Science Institute (OCTSI).
