The UW-DFMCH Madison Residency Program class of 2022 gathered with faculty and mentors to share their scholarly endeavors and community health experiences. The night marked the completion of their residency journey and projects some started as early as their first year in the program.

Associate Program Directors Thomas Hahn, MD, and Billy Michael, MD, hosted the event where residents presented projects ranging from alcohol exposure in pregnancy to antiracism education and advocacy.  Madison residents are required to complete both a Community Health Learning Experience (CHLE) and a scholarly project as part of their training. The goals of the CHLE are to provide structured opportunities to explore areas of interest in community health, promote the design and implementation of a project that follows best practices of community and population health, and expand the understanding of a physician’s role in community health. Scholarly projects involve research or evaluation that results in a finished product such as a publication, presentation, research project or curriculum that has been evaluated.
