Internal Medicine Residency Program Scholarly Activity

Internal Medicine Residency Program’s Scholarly Activity

During their three years of residency training the Internal Medicine residents have numerous opportunities to pursue scholarly activity. Such activity may be in the format of clinical research, quality improvement projects, presentation of their research projects or clinical vignettes at international, national and regional meetings.

Stamford Hospital sponsors an annual research day in the spring where all residents are required to participate. Additionally, each academic year residents in the program complete a one week rotation in Patient Safety and Quality Improvement (PSQI). While on this rotation they meet with the Director of the Office of Research at Stamford Hospital for advisement while working on their research or quality improvement projects. This PSQI rotation also provides residents the opportunity to complete online modules on patient safety, quality improvement and research.

As a result of these efforts the Internal Medicine Residency Program has a robust amount of active research. The quality of which has allowed residents to present their work at international, national and regional meetings as well as publish their scholarly activity along with the faculty.
