This will be a presentation summarizing my experience coordinating and leading a two-month-long Summer Research Program (SRP) in the Department of Family Medicine at UTHSC. Among other themes, the presentation will cover: the concept of the "Summer Research Program," and the differences between it and the more classic research programs/projects; the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach adopted/adapted for this SRP (PBL was originally developed in medical learning environments, and is now being used in many academic programs. Librarians will be encouraged to reflect on whether or not adopting a PBL approach might help give a better and more flexible structure to an SRP); the manner in which academic librarians can become an integral part of (e.g. embedded in) Summer Research Programs on their campuses proactively; and potential challenges facing librarians who may want to coordinate/lead an SRP.
