Research & Scholarly Projects

Poster presentationEach internal medical resident will be required to complete a scholarly project by the completion of his or her training. The project is presented at the end of the PGY-3 year, traditionally at Medical Grand Rounds. Examples of acceptable projects include, but are not limited to: a review of the literature, a clinical or basic science research project, a de novo literature review suitable for publication, an approved newly designed clinical pathway, or hospital/clinical system improvement. Many residents choose to dedicate elective time toward the completion of their project. Although publication is not required, many projects result in publication or presentation at research programs such as meetings of the American College of Physicians, Massachusetts Medical Society, etc.
