Research and scholarly activity are encouraged and supported during your residency. Don’t know where to start? Have an interest in a specific field but not sure where to go? Not sure what research even entails but want to dip your toes in the water? Haven’t ever done a project? Need a mentor? We can help with all of that from starting a project, jumping into an established project, linking you to a mentor and looking for resources, we want to help!
I2MPrOVE (Internists Investigating Medical Processes, Outcomes, Value, and Error) aligns ACGME competencies and milestones with Nebraska Medicine goals and priorities in the areas of Quality Improvement, Patient Safety, and High Value Care. I2MPrOVE is a longitudinal curriculum for Internal Medicine and Medicine-Pediatrics house officers that intends to:
1) Provide house officers with the skills they need to be stewards of high quality, safe, high value, and patient-centered care;

Senior Seminar (IM): scholarly topic of the senior resident’s choice to be presented to the residency as a ‘capstone’ event
Medical blogs (The Weekly Corona with Dr. Raquel Lamarche)
Poster and Abstract Competitions (both IM, Peds, and Med Peds)
