Located in the Texas Medical Center, residents have access to many research opportunities spanning from bench basic science research to translational to clinical. Residents have access to a research brochure updated yearly by each of the subspecialty departments. The brochure lists all active faculty members and their active research projects.
Each year, the department of medicine hosts a House Staff research symposium where residents are invited to present research and clinical abstracts. Winners of the symposium are then asked to present at Internal Medicine Grand Rounds.
During the PGY2 and PGY3 year, residents can apply for the clinical research elective to spend dedicated months focused on research.
Over the past few years, our spring House Staff Research Symposium has taken place virtually, with residents uploading and recording research presentations online for guests and judges to review.
