Section of Hospital Medicine - Research

Hospital Medicine’s research mission is to conduct and initiate clinical research that contributes to the field of hospital medicine and healthcare learning systems. Researchers in the Section are actively conducting several quality improvement and clinical research projects. Hospital Medicine Research Committee leadership provides assistance to faculty members and advanced practice professionals during all phases of a project (IRB approval process, data collection method and tools, statistical plan and analysis, manuscript writing, and so forth.). Our faculty members have had the opportunity to present their work at national and international association conferences every year and have manuscripts published in leading peer-reviewed journals. Our research group is involved in different areas of clinical medicine. Many of them incudes clinical cardiovascular research, obesity and metabolism, learning health care systems, implementation and evaluation of several pilot intervention in hospital medicine settings, QI projects, etc. In addition to that our research section is reaching out to other departments for collaborative research.Hospital Medicine - research
