Each MGH resident is expected to publish at least one original paper in a refereed medical journal during the five-year residency program. In an average year, several research papers are published by the residents of the MGH along with multiple presentations.
Each year, one PGY 2 resident from the categorical program is afforded the opportunity to spend his or her third year in full-time research activity - either clinical or laboratory. This research year is in addition to the five regular years of clinical training and is fully funded through the program. The research opportunities available encompass all the resources of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago.
Research facilities and excellent support staff are available. In addition, the animal laboratory at the University of Illinois College of Medicine provides MGH residents a wide variety of research opportunities.
