Research Training Structure

The research training component of our program is described in more detail on the Research Training page. Our program takes the clinical scientist/scientist-practitioner model of training very seriously, and we provide significant, mentored research training during internship. We allot the equivalent of one full day (eight total hours) of training in the schedule for interns to participate in research activities. Early in the training year, in conjunction with an assigned research preceptor, interns develop a research plan for their internship year. Typically, these plans include a variety of elements (e.g., grant writing development, conference submissions, manuscript development, IRB proposals, data analysis, etc.), but one required element is the creation of an original manuscript based on work conducted during the internship. This manuscript must be approved by the preceptor and submitted by May of the internship year as part of the Annual Paper Competition. We also provide $500 in professional development funds to all interns to facilitate attendance at professional meetings during the intern year.
