As part of the JHUSOM’s efforts to support clinicians with distinction and clinical research, the EPIC Faculty Scholars Program (EFSP) was recently funded. The goal of this program is to provide wrap-around support services to participant teams to test hypotheses, answer research questions, and produce scholarship using the EPIC database.
