Clinical Research in the Residency Program

Clinical research is the foundation of excellent clinical care because what the best doctors do is translate science into practice. The residency program at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center incorporates clinical research into training through two ongoing activities.

These are: The presentations by each member of the residency at bi-monthly Journal Clubs; and Research projects conducted by PGY IIIs with the guidance of preceptors chosen from the attending staff which are presented as posters or oral talks Department of Medicine Research Day at the end of each academic year.

Some of these projects have been published and presented at national meetings. Our residency is one of the few that has a formal clinical research requirement. Feedback from our graduates indicates this has been a valuable and unique part of their experience in our program.

Primary Care at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center

The Englewood Hospital and Medical Center curriculum combines traditional internal medicine with primary care training. Residents have continuity clinics along with one month ambulatory medicine blocks in each year of training. Ambulatory rotations provide an emphasis on disease prevention as well as experience in gynecology, dermatology, orthopedic surgery and medical and non-medical subspecialties. One of the third year ambulatory rotations focuses on geriatric medicine, as required by the ACGME.
