Interested residents can find numerous respected mentors to guide scholarly activities during their residency years. Focus can range from basic science to clinical research projects, or quality-based activities. Residents may pursue a research-elective block rotation and can continue their research throughout the remainder of the schedule.
Every year residents have the opportunity to present their research to the College of Medicine and Drexel University in the form of posters and oral presentations during our departmental research day and University-wide Discovery Day. Residents have also presented their research at local, regional and national meetings including those sponsored by the American Heart Association, American College of Physicians, American College of Chest Physicians and American Thoracic Society, among many others. Our residents have published numerous abstracts, case reports and articles in respected peer-reviewed journals.
Research Opportunities for Internal Presentation
Discovery Day is held in October at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and is sponsored by the College of Medicine Division of Biomedical Science Programs. There is a specific poster presentation category for clinical residents and fellows to submit their work.
The Department of Medicine Research Day is held each May on the Center City Campus in order to showcase research within the department. Each year, the number of submissions grows, 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 five or six) are asked to give oral presentations. Both posters and oral presentations are reviewed and judged by faculty within the Department of Medicine with awards given to the most outstanding projects.
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.
