Scholarly Activity Support Services

Support services are available to augment your ongoing project planning, conduction and dissemination activities. Please allow up to 2 weeks* for support members to reply (not necessarily complete), with longer than 2 weeks* often being required for completion of data analytics.

Turn-around time estimate can vary significantly for each SCS Support Service corresponding with Project Lead Responsibilities items 1-7 below, owing to a very large number of unpredictable factors (total number of current consultations serviced by support liaison, as well as individual project complexities, etc.)

Expanding SCS Scholarly/Research Project Infrastructure Supports

SCS/MSUCOM is now offering an expanded set of phase-specific support services for the Scholarly Activity (SA) projects by SCS-affiliated residency program officials, faculty, fellows and residents.

SCS can help support your prospective Quality Improvement (QI) or research project needs. Our goal is to facilitate community-based residency projects with results that will be readily translated for point-of-care application in your clinical specialty/agency, enabling you and your residents to report the results of your scholarly projects, and meet growing ACGME accreditation expectations.
