Interested residents can find numerous respected, qualified mentors and start investigative research during their residency years. These topics can range from basic science to clinical research projects, which residents may pursue on a research-elective block rotation and continue on a regular basis.
Every year residents are given a chance to present their work in research to the College of Medicine and Drexel University during the residency research competition in the form of posters as well as oral presentations. Residents have also presented their research at national meetings sponsored by the American Heart Association, American College of Physicians, American College of Chest Physicians, and American Thoracic Society, among many others. Numerous abstracts, case reports, and articles have also been published in respected, peer-reviewed journals by our residents.
Research Opportunities for Internal Presentation
Discovery Day is held in October and is sponsored by the College of Medicine Division of Biomedical Science Programs on the Queen Lane Campus. There is a specific poster presentation category for clinical residents and fellows to submit their work.
The Department of Medicine Research Day is held in May to showcase the research within the department, on the Center City Campus. Each year, the number of submissions have grown and the topics continue to diversify. Internal medicine residents and subspecialty fellows are encouraged to submit their work for poster presentation, and a selected number (typically 5-6) are asked to give oral presentations. Both posters and oral presentations are judged by faculty within the department of medicine for awards.
The DrexelMed Journal presents the variety or research and scholarly activities of residents and fellows training at Drexel and the affiliate hospitals of Drexel University College of Medicine.
