UTMB Internal Medicine Residency Program

UTMB internal medicine residents

Research / Projects

The UTMB internal medicine residency program aims to train highly skilled future clinical investigators and academicians. To achieve this goal, the Resident Research Group was established to introduce a proper approach to scientific writing and literature appraisal, to discuss research opportunities in the department, to increase the networking with faculty, to develop collaborations between residents, and to brainstorm the opportunities for future projects. The faculty who lead the monthly RRG meetings have a strong research background and take an active interest in mentoring budding resident researchers. Current residents in the group have participated in at least one, but frequently multiple, research projects according to their fellowship interests. Our future goal is to train the residents to conduct the basic biostatistics that are essential to any research project.

Early in internship, an annual meeting is conducted bringing new interns and their fellow residents together to discuss research and promote an atmosphere conducive to establishing research opportunities and mentors at UTMB. Each resident who has been involved in a research project is given the opportunity to share his/her experiences. Year after year Internal Medicine faculties demonstrate their willingness and ability to mentor residents and help them achieve their career objectives, including fellowship placement. Last year, residents had record research and scholarly activity at the Annual Quality/Research Symposium, which is considered a representation of the greatest academic productivity in recent UTMB history.

Dedicated elective rotations –away from clinical duties- are given in order to provide the resident with enough time to formulate, start, or even finish an ongoing project. Also, the semiannual program evaluation documents the publications, posters, oral presentations, abstracts, and quality improvement projects for each resident, helping boost resident productivity throughout residency.
