Every Community Memorial resident is required to participate in scholarly activity in order to meet graduation requirements.

To help showcase our research, GME hosts an annual Resident Research Forum.

GME also gives residents the opportunity to present their research. Our residents have presented posters at regional and national conferences, including the American College of Physicians (ACP); American College of Osteopathic Internist (ACOI); American Association of Liver Diseases National Conference; Digestive Disease Week; American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology; American Thoracic Society; and Society of General Internal Medicine – bringing home awards from both the ACP and the ACOI National Conferences.
