Dr. William Phillips Receives NAPCRG Distinguished Research Mentor Award

William R. Phillips, MD, MPH, Professor Emeritus of Family Medicine and past Clinical Professor of Health Services, University of Washington, was honored by the NAPCRG-North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG) with its 2018 Distinguished Research Mentor Award.

Bill recently published a Special Article outlining how mentors can use the innovative Pursuing Personal Passion Learner-Centered Mentoring Model to help new researchers overcome the common challenges of finding and focusing research questions.

Built on the foundations of learner-centered teaching and patient-centered care, the P3 Mentoring Model can help researchers identify their key concerns and focus their interests into researchable questions, successful studies and organized programs of scholarship. The model is particularly helpful for new researchers, early career academics, students and trainees, clinician-educators, community based researchers, and generalist scholars.

Bill completed his MPH in Health Services (1975) and his Residency in Preventive Medicine (1979) at the University of Washington School of Public Health.

Congratulations to Dr. Phillips on receiving this prestigious award!
