    The Research Division of the Department of Medicine provides medical research experience to residents in a number of ways.

    The members of the Research Division serve as mentors and facilitators for both faculty and resident research projects. Each resident is assigned a research mentor and the resident meets with his/her mentor every five weeks during their clinic rotation.Medical residents have submitted an average of 25 research projects per year to various national and regional educational meetings, such as the American College of Physicians and medical subspecialty meetings. The Research Division also sponsors a yearly research competition at Staten Island University Hospital for medical residents. All categorical residents are required to complete a research project prior to successful completion of the residency program. An Institutional Research day provides a venue for all residents to present their research. The residents are actively involved and submit approximately 80 abstracts to the Institutional Research day competition.

    Membership of the Research Division includes a Ph.D. in research methodology and biostatistics, who participates in protocol development with each medical resident. Residents are taught the rules and regulations pertaining to medical research and the necessary interaction with the Institutional Review Committee. Research funding, support staff and laboratory facilities are available to the Research Division.
