Scholarly Activity

​ One of the requirements of our training program and of the ACGME is that residents participate and submit scholarly activities. We want you to be engaged in scholarship and find what it can offer you!

Our residency has an excellent track record of sending housestaff to the national and local meetings. 

We are excited that the new 4+4 schedule has provided dedicated time for your scholarly work.  Outlined below are the goals, sources of support and detailed expectations by PGY.


  1. To produce at least one large* and one small** product of scholarly activity over the three years of residency (please see Scholarly Activity Overview for many more).  
  2. To engage in the mentoring process both as a mentee and mentor.
  3. To be exposed to various types of scholarly activity and explore what you enjoy!
  4. To improve our fellowship match and job search resultes.

Sources of Support:

  1. Near-peer mentors (3rd years) - assigned to you based on blocks, interests

  2. Mentors (attendings, researchers, clinic directors, etc.)--your choice (and theirs!) based on areas of expertise, interests, etc.

  3. Center of Innovative Design and Analysis (CIDA):  This program has been engaged by the IMRP to provide biostatistical and data science support to all IM residents throught their residency.  Through the consulting clinic program, CIDA offers residents one-on-one consultations through a CIDA graduate resident assistant who can assist with all steps--study design and power analysis, data collection tools, development of analysis plan, implementation and analysis of findings, review of coding etc.  Please access here: CIDA

  4. Associate and Assistant Program Directors: Drs. Lisa Davis and S. Lindsey Davis (it is confusing, we know...) for research focus, Drs. Julia Limes and Emily Gottenborg for HTP/QI focus and Drs. Jacinda Nicklas and Joe Frank for Primary Care.
