Research & Scholarly Activity

Research and scholarly activity are essential components of every fellow’s training experience.  Since this program was established in 2014, our fellows have presented their scholarly work at local symposia, regional conferences, and national scientific meetings of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.  In support of scholarly activity, the Graduate Medical Education (GME) office provides an Academic Research Coordinator, available to assist with study design, IRB preparation/submission, data analysis, and poster and/or manuscript preparation.  Fellows will work with the Academic Research Coordinator, as well as a GME librarian, available to assist with literature searches and other information resources.  A contracted biostatistician is available for study design and data analysis assistance.
