Research Opportunities

Our multiple clinical tracks and non-clinical pathways have allowed for more scholarly opportunities than ever for our Med-Peds residents. In both IM and Peds, there is strong faculty mentorship with resident-driven initiative to accomplish your research goals.  Residents with specific research interests are connected with faculty members who are participating in research in their field of interest.  Residents also receive free statistical support through the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training. Other specific opportunities for scholarship include:

Medical Education Pathway

All MEP pathway residents complete a scholarly project that can be submitted as a manuscript for publication, an abstract for poster or oral presentation, or a workshop at regional or national meetings. Residents receive education scholarship methods mentorship from MEP leadership, as well as specific content mentorship from their identified faculty mentor. Pathway residents can also take the Medical Education elective, which includes protected time for project work.

IM Research Pathway:

Residents in this pathway receive regular mentorship from IM faculty with advanced research methods training, and receive help connect residents with faculty members who are participating in research in their field of interest.

Med-Peds Residency Tracks

Both the acute care and primary care tracks help participating residents identify meaningful scholarly projects relevant to their future careers and establish faculty or fellow mentors.

Global Health Pathway:

This CCHMC-based pathway pairs residents with global health mentors to complete internationally-focused research projects.

Research electives: 

One or two month blocks of concentrated research elective time are available on both IM and Peds to help residents complete research projects.


ACP Ohio Regional Meeting:

All Med-Peds residents have the opportunity submit a scholarly project to ACP Ohio for their 3rd or 4th year, as well as present a poster at medical grand rounds.  These can be related to research, quality improvement, education, or case reports.
