Resident's and Fellows Lang Research Day 2009
Over the past eight years, New York Hospital Queens has taken a leadership position among community hospitals nationally by establishing a significant research capability for attending physicians and faculty. Most recently, the medical center has expanded its pursuit of its mission by offering an unusual learning opportunity to residents and fellows. In January 2007, the Lang Research Center launched a comprehensive educational program to introduce the essentials of research to physicians-in-training and, ultimately, to help them conduct and present research projects.
An innovative five-month curriculum complements a theoretical base with extensive practical experience, combining noon-time lectures with ongoing one-to-one mentoring. Participants are mentored throughout the program by research center staff in choosing a subject, designing a protocol, getting IRB approval, conducting the research, analyzing the results, and preparing a presentation for delivery on Residents and Fellows Day.
