For residents interested in an academic career, we have a dedicated 7-year Research Track for two qualified candidates in each class. Our residents have various opportunities to work on clinical research involving outcomes, qualitative, disparities, large national databases, and multi-institutional cooperative trials. There are also opportunities to partner with the basic science department and perform translational research. Some of our residents have acquired research positions externally including opportunities as a NIH T32 fellow or a PhD candidate. Graduates of the Research Track have been extremely successful in matching to their desired fellowship positions.
