Research and Other Projects

The UTMB Internal Medicine residency program is the ideal environment to train the highly skilled clinical investigators and specialists of tomorrow.

To facilitate the early incorporation of research into the training of all who wish to pursue it, the Resident Research Group was established - it serves to train residents in the approach to scientific writing and literature appraisal, discuss research opportunities in the department, increase the networking with faculty, develop collaborations between residents, and to brainstorm the opportunities for future projects.

The faculties who lead the monthly RRG meetings have a strong research background and take an active interest in mentoring budding resident researchers. Early in internship, new interns and their fellow residents are brought together with faculty to discuss research and promote an atmosphere conducive to sharing opportunities and establishing mentors at UTMB. Each resident involved in a research project is given the opportunity to share his/her experiences. Year after year Internal Medicine faculty demonstrate their willingness and ability to mentor residents and help them achieve their career objectives, including fellowship placement.

Last year graduates had a record research and scholarly activity presenting/co-authoring 132 abstracts, presentations at international, national, or regional meetings. Also, they published 24 manuscripts in high impact journals and 1 book chapter over the past 3 years. All of the graduates were involved in teaching presentations.

Dedicated elective rotations - away from clinical duties - are offered in order to provide residents time to formulate, develop, and publish ongoing research. Semiannual program evaluations document the publications, posters, oral presentations, abstracts, and quality improvement projects for each resident, helping boost resident productivity throughout residency.
