For the purposes of this program, scholarly activities include the following categories*: The scholarship of discovery that includes original research that advances knowledge; The scholarship of integration that involves synthesis of information across disciplines, across topics within a discipline, or across time; The scholarship of application (also later called the scholarship of engagement) that goes beyond the service duties of a faculty member to those within or outside the University and involves the rigor and application of disciplinary expertise with results that can be shared with and/or evaluated by peers; The scholarship of teaching and learning that the systematic study of teaching and learning processes. It differs from scholarly teaching in that it requires a format that will allow public sharing and the opportunity for application and evaluation by others. *"Scholarship Reconsidered" https://depts.washington.edu/gs630/Spring/Boyer.pdf Scholarly activities generally fall under the following research framework: Domain Examples Clinical Human subjects, patient oriented, translational, QI, etc. Educational Curriculum, teaching, learning Population Health Health outcomes of a group of individuals Community Health Health outcomes of communities/neighborhoods/geography Administration Clinical and financial operations, financial sustainability Informatics Data collection, classification, storage, using computer networks Who is eligible: Any DFM faculty member may apply.
