Abstract:

Objectives/Intent:
Introduction to Research Methods (IRM) teaches Pharm.D. students (PHMDS) the knowledge, skills, and insight to successfully develop a research proposal (RP); a valuable experience in the scientific method. A final RP, either investigative study or patient care service, is prepared with faculty oversight. Recent transition to an entry-level curriculum has challenged our ability to continue to offer this experience. IRM was restructured and college-wide faculty participation was introduced. The objective of this summary is to describe the process of recruitment of faculty advisors (FA) and their responsibilities in the development of student RPs in IRM, and the outcomes of this process.

Methods/Process:
Participation of all faculty members in the College of Pharmacy was solicited. The proposal assignment and faculty advising and evaluation responsibilities were explained to interested faculty.

Process/Outcomes:
Seventeen of 41 faculty participated. FA advised 3 teams of 2 students. FA responsibilities included: topic selection and background; mentoring for RP development; evaluation of the first and final RP draft.

Unexpectedly PHMDS became aware of the varied research performed by the faculty, which was reflected in topics for RPs.

Implications:
Expanded faculty involvement in IRM improved efficiency and expanded student experiences, and provided new opportunities for basic science faculty to demonstrate their ties with the profession. Research plays a vital role in the future of pharmacy and PHMDS must be proficient in the understanding of the conduct of research. We provide a template to teach the research method and improve faculty participation in the process.
