Internal Medicine Residency Training Program is invested in promoting and
cultivating research opportunities for those residents who are seeking research
experience to enhance a future academic career, fellowship candidacy or both.
Our approach combines ample elective time of which 2 months can be used for
research rotations, multiple mechanisms to meet potential research mentors and
departmental level research guidance and mentorship from the Associate Program
Director for Subspecialty Training, Dr. Brian Graham. Additionally, the
Department of Medicine provides funds to help offset the cost of travel to
regional or national meetings for residents who submit original research
Department of Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine has a
strong track record of excellence in biomedical research. The Department of
Medicine accounted for 32% of all NIH funding to the school of medicine in
2012. Our diversity is our strength, as Department of Medicine faculty are
based at multiple hospitals and campuses in our system, providing unique
research opportunities across a variety of topics and patient populations.
Finally, the vision of Dr. Schwartz includes collaboration among different
departments within the School of Medicine and across the University of Colorado
to increase opportunities for all trainees and faculty.
