Continuity Clinic

At Conway Regional Health System, our goal is to let passion drive everything we do to deliver medical excellence with a compassionate touch to everyone who walks through our doors. Our mission is to train residents to improve the health of individuals and communities. We will achieve this by:

  • Teaching the required skills
  • Providing needed resources
  • Fostering confidence within residents to practice comprehensive family medicine in any setting

While rotating at the family medicine practice in the Conway Medical Group, residents will explore social and economic determinants of health and medical care as well as develop skills for community-level interventions. At the clinic, we are committed to providing high-quality, personalized care for patients in all phases of life. Residents will practice primary care under the supervision of board-certified physicians, alongside interdisciplinary team members to provide quality team-based care.

Scholarly Activities

To support the culture of scholarship, the resident will approach patient care with a spirit of inquiry that will last his/her entire career. The goal is for the resident to broaden his/her skills in scholarship including critical review of literature, evidence-based medicine, research methodology, data analysis, and scientific writing. Resident scholarly activity will be written publications and presentations at scientific meetings, Journal Clubs, and Mortality & Morbidity conferences at Conway Regional.

Residents will work collaboratively with members of the teaching faculty during their scholarly pursuits. If accepted, residents will be supported by the program and by Conway Regional to develop oral presentations, posters, or workshops in the local, regional, and national arenas. In the first year of training, residents will be engaged in quality improvement, patient safety, and research initiatives in collaboration with teaching faculty.

Scholarly activity is a requirement for accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The expectation is that residents will submit a poster presentation, abstract, or journal article for publication or complete a 30-60-minute presentation to their peers and faculty by the end of the second year of training. Additional interest in research or scholarly activity is encouraged but not required.
