MAHEC Online Journal of Research

The MAHEC Online Journal of Research was published by the Mountain Area Health Education Center from 2013 to 2017 to promote and share peer-reviewed learner research and other scholarly activities that advance the understanding of our patients, evidence-based patient care, and education in obstetrics and gynecology, family medicine, general surgery, psychiatry, pharmacy, hospice and palliative care, geriatrics, and general dentistry.

We invite you to explore our journal archives to learn more about some of MAHEC's innovative clinical and educational research, evidence-based practice recommendations, innovations in patient care, quality improvement projects, case reports, peer-reviewed poster presentations, and narrative essays on the training and practice of medicine.
