Department of Internal Medicine


Our supportive faculty and diverse patient population create an environment for research endeavors that run the spectrum from case reports to clinical research investigations. Each resident is required to complete at least one scholarly project during their residency. Every year, our residents are invited to present their projects at regional, national, and even international symposia highlighting the quality of their research activities. Over 100 case reports, QI projects, and clinical research projects were presented or published by residents in the 2019–2020 academic year. Residents may also apply for the Research Scholar Pathway which allows for additional dedicated research time.

In recent years, residents have presented their scholarly work at numerous conferences including:

  • American College of Physicians (ACP)
    • Ohio ACP
    • Army/Air Force ACP
  • American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE)
  • American College of Gastroenterology (ACG)
  • Digestive Diseases Week (DDW)
  • American College of Cardiology (ACC)
  • American Heart Association (AHA)
  • American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST)
