The J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program strongly supports and encourages academic scholarship by residents and helps provide resources (such as the PRIME program) to achieve that goal. Faculty mentorship is at the core of the resident research experience at Emory. Whether these relationships are fostered through the PRIME program, or develop naturally through meetings on inpatient or outpatient rotations, Emory faculty mentors are excited to provide guidance in hands-on research activities as well as the writing, editing and publishing of manuscripts. In part because of this fostering environment, Emory IM residents have been extremely productive, publishing frequently in peer-edited journals, authoring book chapters, leading quality improvement projects, and participating in numerous other scholarly works.
Our residents also present at multiple venues at the local, regional, national, and international levels. Locally, residents have the opportunity to submit original work to annual forums and receive feedback from experts in the field. Such local venues include:
- Internal Medicine Residency Research Day
- Department of Medicine Research Day
- Graduate Medical Education (GME) Research Day
- Emory Healthcare Quality Improvement Day
- Healthcare Research Quality Day
