Chaplain Residency Research Seminar Series
The research curriculum series will be spread out over the three units of the residency year. There will be research assignments included for each unit. Residents will have the opportunity to help select research articles to analyze and to complete a Process Improvement project that will be presented to the CHS Spiritual Care and Education staff at an end of the year Research Summit. Residents will complete a literature review as a part of the curriculum which they may choose to submit for publication. Participants should plan to spend 2 to 3 hours of preparation per hour of face to face instruction for the seminars. This preparation time will include completing assigned reading and the learning projects assigned for each unit. Faculty for the research seminar series will include members of the CHS Spiritual Care staff, CHS research faculty, and research consultants from outside CHS. CPE students should review the research series curriculum and prepare for seminars by completing all assigned reading and accompanying assignments. CPE students may choose to complete the literature review and process improvement projects individually or in teams of two. Students are encouraged to integrate the learning from these seminars into the rest of their CPE work and apply it to their clinical work with specific patient populations or with teammate support. In addition to the research seminars, residents are expected to participate in the monthly CHS Research Journal Club webinar.
