The osteopathic undergraduate medical education standards have evolved over the past 2 decades to require undergraduate medical student participation in research and scholarly activity. The authors’ objective was to review those evolving standards and develop a model for introducing the principles and practice of research that combines core content with experiential learning. They identified fundamental topics pertinent to the research process and herein provide their recommendations for incorporating these topics into the curriculum as self-study, online modules, and team-based and active learning exercises. The authors’ proposed educational model would provide an avenue for osteopathic medical schools to meet the requirements for scholarly activity. Increasing students' and residents' knowledge of the research process will lay the foundation for their engagement in research and scholarly activity and their practice of evidence-based medicine.
