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:
“My research interests are in health outcome measurement and health systems research. UIHC has well regarded research faculty and access to several interesting databases in these areas. There are also very active health services research groups which get together for peer-feedback sessions. The faculty and residency program have been very supportive of my interests. As I resident I have analysed how patient characteristics are associated with the transfer of patients from one acute care hospital to another using the State Inpatient Dataset. I have had posters accepted at national meetings and a manuscript in review from this research.” – Janel Hanmer, MD
“I have been fortunate to participate in 2 research projects, with more in the pipeline. The first one involves head and neck cancers and the second explores metastatic neuroendocrine tumors. Both projects have been accepted for poster presentations at national Oncology meetings. I was amazed at how approachable the Faculty and Fellows were when I talked to them about my interest in research. Their mentorship has been invaluable and helped me to realize that I want to continue to incorporate research in my career. In addition, it has helped me to get to know the faculty we have in our specialty departments, which will prove useful when applying for a Hematology/Oncology fellowship.” – Roberto Leon-Ferre, MD
