Meet Our Chief Research Officer

Meet Dr. Gazarin

 

head shot, Mohamed Gazarin 


Introducing research as one of our strategic priorities is one of the most exciting things to happen at WDMH. Research shakes and moves individual minds and directions. It empowers our team to challenge the unchallengable and question the unquestionable. 

Research will help us re-arrange the priorities of our personal goals by shining the light on the pursuit of excellence and impact.

It will not just sharpen our skills and update our knowledge - it will allow us to contribute to the body of knowledge.

 

One of the beauties of research is that it doesn’t need any special qualifications. One just needs a mind willing to challenge status quo and willing to solve problems.

 

I envision three operational priorities for the Research Office:  

  • Networking:
    • Horizontal - with similar rural hospitals and practice sites
    • Vertical - with national leaders in rural research
  • Building research infrastructure: by improving institutional capacity through our colleagues or via creating readily- available access to resources in the five fundamental research steps:
    • Identifying the study question
    • Selecting study approach and designing methodology
    • Collecting data
    • Analyzing data
    • Reporting findings

  • Research Agenda: Moving toward creation of our research agenda which will enable us to develop specialized expertise and grow 

These three operational priorities will be achieved through a hybrid mix of short and long term strategies.
