Focus Groups



Provide opportunities for investigators interested in a specific focus area to meet and discuss research ideas.



Leaders will be appointed based on volunteers identified during the annual CHVR membership survey. We expect multiple leaders will be selected to organize multiple different focus groups. The number and topics will be based on results of the CHVR membership application survey.



Determined by focus group leader; including journal clubs and research seminars or other formats as appropriate to stimulate high caliber research and increased research output. It is expected that the most effective format for each focus group will be dependent upon the topic and members.



Monthly or bi-monthly as determined by leader
