- This supplement to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Primary Care Training and Enhancement grant allowed us to host trainings to address specific needs around the training of individuals that deliver and/or support the treatment of opioid use disorder, including the comprehensive services necessary for successful medication-assisted treatment (MAT). In addition to MAT training, the funds were used for integration of MAT into the core curriculum of the medical education program. F. Stuart Leeds, MD was the principal investigator. 07/01/2017 – 06/31/2019.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) grant developed and implemented SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment) training programs across multiple disciplines, including medicine, nursing, counseling, and clinical psychology. SBIRT is a comprehensive, integrated, public health approach to delivering early intervention and treatment services to persons with substance use disorders and for persons at risk for developing these disorders. It focused on providing substance use intervention and treatment to those who used substances at unhealthy or risky levels and who can be diverted through early intervention from developing or experiencing adverse drug or alcohol consequences. Paul Hershberger, PhD was the principal investigator. 9/30/2015 – 3/28/2019.

Active research opportunities for medical and graduate students are available. Medical students have the opportunity to conduct scholarship activities, through the Area Health Education Center summer program and one-on-one. Students interested in pursuing a research/scholarship project, please review the short power point presentation and contact the research program manager to schedule a meeting. Students should be prepared to discuss interests, ideas, questions, and goals during the initial meeting in order to decide which faculty member would be most fitting as a mentor. Jayna will also provide guidance to students on which CITI training courses need to be completed.
Our goal is for students to present the findings of their project through posters, presentations, and publications. Many Scholarship Opportunities are available: Boonshoft School of Medicine Medical Student Research Symposium, STFM (Society of Teachers of Family Medicine), and regional family medicine meetings: Family Medicine Education Consortium and Family Medicine Midwest.
Currently, students are involved in Students Teaching Educational Plans for Success (STEPS) Initiative, working at Reach Out on a Household Wellness Initiative, and working on quality improvement projects at both Wright State Physicians and Five River Family Health Center. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about the research opportunities within the Department of Family Medicine!
Medical Student Scholarly Research Project
Students are required to complete a Scholarship in Medicine research project. The curriculum for the scholarly project lays the foundation for how to approach a problem with a scientific perspective and gives you practice in identifying the key questions, developing a hypothesis, collecting and analyzing data, making conclusions based on the data, and putting it all together in writing.
Students will also be instructed in the basic scientific and ethical principles of clinical and translational research.
