Research

Our research in the division of hospital medicine encompasses a wide range of topics and methods but generally falls into one of two categories, clinical or educational.

Our strongest interest is in conducting rigorous quality improvement initiatives and publishing the results. We want to include trainees in all of our research efforts and can provide the structure for trainee-led projects to find success.
