Internal Medicine residents interested in research have many opportunities with 154 faculty investigators that span all internal medicine divisions.
Here’s what our residents have to say about their experiences:
"As a resident at the University of Iowa, I have been able to build a strong foundation for an academic career in Cardiology. I have found the Internal Medicine residency program to be extremely supportive in furthering varying academic interests of all residents. While exploring options for clinical and translational research in cardiovascular medicine, I received excellent guidance from the program about potential mentors. Given the collegial academic environment at Iowa, I was effortlessly able to find faculty mentors who were truly invested in me. They helped me transition from merely contributing to ongoing research to leading my own research projects in cardiovascular outcomes. Specifically, I have worked on scientifically investigating optimal and equitable resource utilization in cardiovascular care. With dedicated research time and support from the residency program, I have been able to present my work at the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association national meetings. I have also published manuscripts in peer reviewed journals including an original investigation in JAMA Internal Medicine. " – Rohan Khera, MD
