About the Residency



Understanding the important role of robust research during training and beyond, the program established the Residency Research Committee in 1999 to direct and monitor research outcomes of our housestaff. An annual in-house research day and grand rounds is held each year in spring to showcase the work of housestaff and promote research based collaboration.


Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science (CTS)


Residents may choose to obtain a Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science (CTS 18 credits) on a part-time basis offered by Rutgers Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Courses are conducted once a week in the evening. Coursework for certification includes: Perspectives in Translational Pharmacology, Ethics and Regulations in Clinical Research, Clinical Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Practical Aspects of Clinical Trial Design and Grant Writing  for Clinical Research. For those trainees who successfully complete the CTS certificate program,  the Department of Medicine will provide full tuition reimbursement.

Research with Distinction

The Research with Distinction program launched in 2005 recognizes residents with exceptional research productivity at the time of training completion.

Our program also offers the ABIM Research Pathway for select candidates who are interested in pursuing careers as clinician scientists.

Residents are encouraged to publish their research findings in peer reviewed journals. Over recent years,

residents have presented their work at many internal medicine and subspecialty conferences including:
