Research plays an important role in our clinical and education practices. Between 20-25% of all TCOM students conduct an elective research project in the biomedical sciences, patient-oriented clinical studies or health services and policy during their four years at TCOM.
Providing medical students with a meaningful research based educational experience is integral as medical students become exemplary physicians and informed consumers of medical research outcomes in the practice of evidence based medicine.
Conducting a research project during medical school helps to build an academic track record strengthening residency applications and successful match for residency training.
Under the direction of a faculty mentor, the research experience is often tailored to meet the student’s interests including a Pediatric Summer Research Elective, Honors Research Practicum, one month Research Elective, and Dual-Degree programs.
