The Department of Medicine at BIDMC is one of the major research departments in the United States. With over $190 million in Department of Medicine research funding annually, we rank in the top four among independent hospitals nationwide. Our portfolio currently includes 190 active NIH research grants, including 11 training grants.
We believe that discovery is an intrinsic part of being a physician, and are committed to the training of residents in all dimensions. In addition to our dedicated Physician-Scientist Track for residents pursuing a research career, the Department of Medicine endeavors to expose every resident to understanding what research entails. Our program offers research training to every interested resident, fosters research careers, and introduces residents to a spectacular array of training opportunities that are also available as part of our fellowships.
