The Research objectives of the Department of Medicine are the following:
- To train the residents and fellows to perform researches and creative works which are focused, feasible and relevant to the practice of Internal Medicine
- To improve the quality of researches through guidance and feedback from consultants who serve as advisers, co-authors and technical reviewers.
- To train the residents and fellows on how to acquire, appraise and apply research evidence in clinical practice.
- To develop among trainees a sense of appreciation and value for research and recognize its relevance in both the training and practice of Internal Medicine.
- To acknowledge the hard work and interest of trainees in the conduct of research.
These main objectives are accomplished through a series of activities initiated by the Department and the Research committee.
Each resident decides on a Research Package at the start of the residency program. This serves as a guide for all research activities during the 3-year tenure in the department. All research topics pursued by the trainees are carefully evaluated by their consultant co-authors/ advisers, the Research Committee and for final approval by the department’s Technical Review Board. Mini-fora are held frequently for the purpose of consultation and feedback. Fellows are likewise guided in the same manner by their respective section consultants. The Technical Review Board is composed of the Assistant Chair for Research and the consultant research coordinators of each section. It holds office at the Lipid Research Unit situated in the Medical Research Laboratory. The department also employs an in-house statistician for consultation.
For the past two years, the department embarked on a new set of researches for the trainees. Creative works such as educational CDs and booklets discussing relevant topics in Internal Medicine were pursued. Two of the booklets are already published for national distribution and the rest are on its way. To aid in the publication, some also pursue manuscript writing of finished but unpublished works.
To increase technical knowledge on the conduct and use of research, workshops are regularly given to the trainees. These workshops, strategically scheduled within the academic year, discuss priority concerns like critical appraisal and evidence-based medicine; systematic review, protocol and scientific paper writing as well as statistical analysis.
The Department of Medicine Research Registry is an ongoing project. It aims to track, identify, recognize and disseminate the research outputs of trainees and consultants in the department. Unpublished papers and ongoing researches are identified through this registry. All studies being undertaken by the trainees and consultants of the department are registered here.
Annually, the department holds a Research Forum where outstanding researches are presented and recognized. The 3 most outstanding papers from each category are awarded with a Certificate of Recognition and cash prize. These categories are as follows: Meta-analysis, Case Report and Original Studies. At the end of the academic year, these papers are again presented during one of the department conferences, to serve both as recognition and inspiration for the students, residents, fellows and consultants of the department.
Every commencement exercise, the department chooses a Most Outstanding Resident for Research and a Most Outstanding Fellow for Research based on research output and merit. Each awardee is given a plaque of recognition and cash prize sponsored by distinguished consultants in the department.
The Research Wall, conspicuously located in front of Ward 3, displays important announcements, achievements, events and updates regarding the department’s research activities.
The Lipid Research Unit at Medical Research Laboratory provides auxiliary services such as computer services for literature search, encoding of research proposals and paper writing. As previously mentioned, transactions regarding technical review of protocols are also done here. Adjacent is a conference room for research-related discussion/meetings or presentation.
