Internal Medicine Residency > CLINICAL SCHOLARS PROGRAM


We believe that scholarly activity is an integral part of each internal medicine resident's clinical training. Physicians must be able to access, critique and synthesize medical data and apply it to patient care, and ask appropriate questions and generate and test hypotheses based on their own experiences. We have developed this exciting program to assist and stimulate our residents in engaging in these scholarly activities.

The Clinical Scholar program is a research track within our program that offers selected residents additional time for research and scholarly experiences. Selected residents will receive a special schedule with one to two additional elective blocks of research early during the second year and the opportunity to attend the ‘Designing Clinical Research' course at the University of California in San Francisco. The selected residents are required to complete a written project suitable for publication or presentation. Residents can use a variety of study designs for their written projects including, but not limited to, cohort, case series, meta-analysis or clinical trial. A medical education, medical history, quality improvement, or cost-effectiveness study may also be an appropriate project. Furthermore, these selected residents will receive financial support to attend a local or national meeting to present their work. Residents who successfully complete the program will be awarded a special certificate upon graduation.

Applications for the program will be accepted in March of the resident's PGY-I year for the following academic year. Candidates must submit a research proposal, curriculum vitae, and a letter of recommendation from their research mentor. Applications are reviewed by a committee and selected in May.
