Achieving Scholarship in Residency

University of Kansas, Internal Medicine Residency Program

Our residents are very successful in disseminating scholarship while in training (see list from Class of 2019 below). While categorical residents are required to conduct two scholarly activities during their residency, most easily surpass this. The residency program offers up to 9 weeks of protected elective research time over three years of categorical training. Furthermore, residents are offered longitudinal protected research time during their ambulatory +1 week.

In order to facilitate resident research involvement, our program has appointed Research Liaisons from each of our subspecialty divisions. Liaisons connect residents with appropriate project mentors based on their interests, type of experience, and level of involvement they are seeking (i.e. research grants, manuscript, oral presentation, abstract, case report, QI project, etc.). We have appointed Liaisons in the following areas:

  • Allergy/Immunology
  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology/Hepatology
  • Pulmonology/Critical Care
  • Hematology
  • Oncology
  • General Internal Medicine
  • Nephrology
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Rheumatology
  • Palliative Care
  • Medical Education 

Our robust framework for involving residents in scholarship has provided numerous opportunities for local, regional, and national dissemination of their work at conferences and in medical journals. The department provides travel funds to assist with making this dissemination possible.

Please see highlights of the major scholarly activity of our residents who graduated in 2019. This list reflects a flavor of our scholarship but is not all-inclusive:
