The residents and faculty author "HelpDesk Answers" (brief, structured evidence-based answers to clinical questions, based on the best available recent evidence- which are peer reviewed and published in Evidence-Based Practice. Faculty also author “Clinical Inquiries”, which are systematic reviews of the best available evidence in order to answer author-created questions of clinical importance to daily practice. Clinical Inquiries are published in the Journal of Family Practice and American Family Physician. Residents and fellows also have the opportunity to co-author Clinical Inquiries with faculty.
