The UTMB Internal Medicine residency program is the ideal environment to train the highly skilled clinical investigators of tomorrow. Research projects are plentiful on the UTMB campus among a variety of departments. To foster research efforts, residents can dedicate elective rotations, free from clinical duties, towards their research.
As a direct result, our residents have been able to present their efforts at a variety of conferences, on the international, national, or regional level. Our residents have presented at all major conferences, such as: Regional, State, and National ACP, ASCO, AACE, ACC, DDW, and AGS. UTMB Internal Medicine provides some financial assistance towards resident travel to make these trips feasible.
