Research is a core component of residents' training. Not only does it strengthen their scientific base and improve their ability to apply the principles of scientific investigation in clinical settings, research supports their applications to highly competitive and prized fellowship programs.
Our GME office funds research projects, journal submissions, and also covers the expenses of conference presentations including travel expenses, conference fees and accommodation.
One research course that our program offers is the Introduction to the Principles and Practice of Clinical Research (IPPCR) course from the National Institute of Health (NIH), which trains participants on how to effectively and safely conduct clinical research.
Recognizing that research is often difficult to sustain individually, the Department of Medicine encourages a culture of research that is best served by collaboration and mutual support among the house staff. Faculty members offer significant support and guidance in these endeavors. Within this framework, the department's residents are successful in preparing abstracts, presentations, and publications on a range of topics.
Residents may also work closely with Dr. Dawn Fishbein, Associate Chair for Research. In this role, she has been advising medical residents to become more engaged in research, especially in their area of career interest. Dr. Fishbein is an Infectious Disease physician-scientist with a primary research focus in viral hepatitis, and particularly hepatitis C.
Resident research projects have been presented at MedStar Research Day, the regional American College of Physicians (ACP) Associates Meetings and national ACP meetings, the American Gastroenterology Association, the American College of Cardiology, Infectious Disease Week, American Thoracic Society, American Society of Hematology, and many other prestigious conferences.
