All residents in the Department of Medicine at Maimonides are encouraged to pursue research and scholarly endeavors. The department provides its residents with the resources, time, and logistical support to be successful in this area. The Department has integrated the teaching of research techniques into the general curriculum. There is also a departmental Director of Research who, along with two other faculty members, personally mentors and reviews the research endeavors of every house officer. In addition, the medical center employs a full-time biostatistician who is available to consult on any project at any stage in its development or implementation.
For those who have a strong interest in research, faculty will assist the resident to identify and select an appropriate research topic that is aligned with his or her career plans and fellowship education. Maimonides residents have presented at many national and regional meetings and have won national awards for both clinical and basic science research over the last several years.
