Research

It is our belief that an understanding of research methodology is an essential component of Internal Medicine training. As such, we encourage all residents to complete and present a scholarly project during the course of residency. Projects range from basic science research to clinical/translational research to curricular development/assessment to quality improvement projects, and everything in between. We work to connect residents with a mentor in their area of interest.
