Every CMH resident is required to participate in scholarly activity in order to meet graduation requirements. The scope of this activity is defined by the requirements of the specialty college and may include both research and quality improvement activities. Residents should review those requirements carefully prior to initiating a project to ensure it meets the specifications of their specialty board. For some specialties, quality improvement activities may meet the research requirement; for other specialties, it is a standalone requirement. The Graduate Medical Education Program has established a Research Support Team to help guide residents with their scholarly activity.

Research Support Team members are:

  • Michelle Azimov, MD, FACP
  • Graal Diaz, PhD, MSN, MA, CCRNK
  • Amanda Frugoli, DO, FACOI
  • Cameryn Garrett, PhD, MWH
  • Robert Rubin, MD, PhD

The members of the Research Support Team assist residents, faculty, and medical students in designing and completing their research projects and are available for consultation and guidance. After consulting with the Research Support Team, most research projects will need to be submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for approval.

Residents are encouraged to present their final work at a national meeting. The Graduate Medical Education Program will help residents to attend a conference where their work is presented.
