Ascension Providence Hospital Scholarly Activity

     Research is an integral component of the Internal Medicine Residency program. Residents will have the opportunity to do case reports, retrospective studies (chart reviews), experimental studies (clinical trials, animal studies) and prospective studies. These studies can be developed with input from faculty, the Internal Medicine Research Coordinator (Dr. Gurbir Singh), Biomedical Research department and residents.
     Each year, a number of papers from the department are published in peer reviewed journals. Our residents present numerous oral papers and posters at local, regional, national and international meetings including Ascension Providence Hospital's Research Day, among others. We are extremely proud of these accomplishments.
     A listing of our recently published papers is shown below.
