 Resident Research and Scholarly Activities

​​​​​Resident Research: The Division of Education provides resources and funds to our residents for the research. We have a dedicated research core faculty member in our team. The role of the faculty member is to meet all residents on a regular basis and guide and assist them in their research projects.

Quality Improvement Projects: All residents are required by the program to participate in at least one QI project during their residency. The QI projects include both hospital-based as well as Outpatient QI projects. The residents also participate in QI projects on disparities and social determinants of health. The residents are trained to participate in QI and are supervised at each step of individual projects.


The residents are provided assistance to participate in activities that include:

  • Case vignette presentations

  • Poster Presentation at state and national level

  • Case-Reports to reputable Journals


MCRI provides research services, such as biostatistics, biomedical informatics, study design and publication support.
