- Identify publishable topics of interest to medical educators, health professionals, students and patients.
- Launch manageable planning efforts with potential collaborators.
- Employ time management strategies that support scholarly research and publication efforts.
- Access campus resources that can be used to inform project planning and development.
- Locate traditional and non-traditional scholarship and publication venues.
