Research - Internal Medicine
As members of a Department of Medicine internationally recognized for research and education, residents are part of an educational environment and culture designed to foster excellence in clinical skills and the acquisition of medical knowledge. The Department has 171 full-time faculty members and more than 70 subspecialty and post-doctoral fellows in 13 divisions who contribute to the education of the residents. In aggregate, our faculty produces more than 300 publications a year in high impact journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Science, and JAMA.
The Department receives over $28 million dollars annually in extramural funding which includes support for the Vermont Center for Immunology and Infectious Disease, the Vermont Lung Center, the Cardiovascular Research Institute, the Vaccine Testing center, the Center for Clinical and Translational Science, and numerous other programs that include clinical, translational and basic science. Faculty members serve on NIH study sections and FDA Advisory panels, are editors of journals and members of editorial boards, and hold leadership positions in national organizations.
All residents in the program participate in scholarly activity during the course of their training. There are a myriad of opportunities to be involved in research ranging from the bench to the bedside and dedicated time during the residency program for research is encouraged. Residents frequently publish their work and present at regional and national meetings.
