Internal Medicine Residency Program
Winthrop-University Hospital offers exceptional research opportunities. Internal Medicine Faculty and Residents have been highly productive, with many publications and national presentations. Residents have presented their work at national meetings such as the American College of Physicians (ACP), the American Thoracic Society (ATS), American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), American Academy of Allergy & Immunology (AAAI), and the American Society of Hematology (ASH).
Basic Science and Clinical Research opportunities are readily available through each of the divisions of the Department of Medicine, as well as in the other departments of Winthrop-University Hospital. Nationally recognized and funded basic science and clinical research programs are ongoing in each of the divisions of the Department of Medicine. In addition, residents participate in electives at the National Institute of Health (NIH) and are engaged in research projects at the Cold Spring Harbor Research Laboratory. Our clinical and academic affiliations further add to the wealth of research opportunities.
Internal Medicine residents participate in a series of research workshops that include topics such as Critical Appraisal of the Literature, Statistics and Study Design. These skills are then applied to the residents' own research projects, as well as during Journal Club, Morning Report, and other conferences.
Winthrop-University Hospital’s Annual House Staff Research Day provides a wonderful opportunity for residents to present their scholarly work. Research Day is a spectacular event, with a keynote speaker, over 100 poster presentations and invited platform presentations. Research Faculty award prizes to the most exceptional work in several categories.
