Research and Investigation 

Research Pathway

Some residents have extensive research experience and know that research will be an integral component of their future careers. Many other residents are considering research as part of their career future, but may not have participated in significant research opportunities before residency or have a full understanding of the broad array of research opportunities available in medicine and still other residents detest research.  In order to provide an overview of research options a resident could consider and to provide education in the basics of research, our research pathway curriculum includes:

  • Longitudinal didactic series reviewing various research disciplines
  • “Meet the Professor” lectures from faculty actively pursuing research careers
  • Small-group workshops on writing research abstracts and grant applications
  • Senior resident research presentations
  • Fellowship preparation
  • Career mentoring sessions
  • Administrative leadership career paths
  • Wellness programming
  • Biopharmaceutical company start-up
  • Management and careers in industry

Residents in the research pathway are paired with an appropriate mentor and complete one to two months of research as part of the program.

Our Research Pathway is led by Associate Program Director Lisa Davis, MD.
