Introduction: Scholarship is an important mandate of academic institutions. According to Boyer, it can be broken down into four interdependent domains of research, integration, application and teaching (1). Accreditation requirements mandate scholarly activity in post-graduate medical programs in Canada (2), USA (3) and UK, but specific guidelines on how to incorporate this into existing curricula are lacking. This results in individual residency programs unintentionally biasing resident scholarly activity towards research projects, which is in keeping with existing pressures for publication-driven promotion in academic medicine (4). However, this approach can disadvantage residents with interests and career goals in other domains of scholarship.

Objectives: To develop a framework for designing structured scholarly program within post-graduate medical education residency program.

Methods: Residents and faculty of Canadian university-based critical care residency program were surveyed by means of individual interviews and focus groups to identify needs and goals of a scholarly program. These results were compared with existing national critical care training requirements to develop a hypothetical framework for proposed scholarly program, which was then edited in a series of iterations by end-users (residents and faculty) to incorporate user needs, maintain breadth of scholarship as defined by Boyer, provide opportunity for specialty specific scholarship and engage local institutional expertise.

Results: We developed a framework for designing structured scholarly program within residency programs by acknowledging the four domains of scholarship as defined by Boyer and applying user-centered design principles to develop scholarly program that includes broad categories, takes into account resident interests and future career goals, allows flexibility in scheduling, is specialty specific and engages local expertise and resources.

Conclusion: User-centered design principles can be applied to Boyer’s theory of scholarship to develop specialty specific scholarly program within post-graduate medical education residency program
