One of the aims of the Department and the fellowship is to train the leaders of tomorrow. One of the main ways to accomplish this is to educate the fellows in research techniques and to encourage various forms of investigation.
There are many projects in process at all times in the department. They include:
- examination of national databases
- participation in national randomized trials
- industry-sponsored studies
- reports of our experience
- video demonstrations of techniques or challenging problems,
- books, chapters and state-of-the-art articles
- and many others.
The weekly research meeting is held on Wednesday mornings immediately following the didactic program. We will review current and planned projects, progress and opportunities. Each fellow will discuss their projects.
Residents, fellows, and faculty involved in required GME scholarly activities receive guidance from the Center for Academic Research Excellence (CARE) through the Clinical Academic Research team, comprised of an Academic Research Mentor, a Project Coordinator, and a Regulatory Coordinator. In addition, the center includes a group of biostatisticians, a health economist, and a medical editor.
CARE assists residents and faculty with all types of scholarly activities (case studies, QI projects and research studies)
Fellows are expected to complete the following:
At least one research project leading to a national presentation and a publication
An educational video demonstrating a technique or discussion of a problem in CRS
A book chapter or review article on a colorectal or related subject. You will have ample help to accomplish this.
