In addition to the vast clinical pathology here at OSUWMC, we have a wide variety of clinical research projects available. Recognizing that everyone has different research experiences during their graduate medical education, we have designed a curriculum which ensures that fellows are able to successfully complete a research project in their first year of fellowship – and to build on their own project in their second year.
During your first year of fellowship, it is expected you will have identified a research mentor who will guide you through your research project. During orientation week, incoming fellows will have the opportunity to meet faculty members in the division, as well as affiliated faculty from other colleges and divisions who will outline their clinical research interests and potential projects available for fellows. It is expected by the end of your first year that you will be able to submit an abstract to a major conference for presentation, and by the end of your second year you should be able to submit a manuscript. Every three months the Faculty Research Advisory Committee (FRAC) meets with the fellow and the faculty advisor to ensure that all deadlines are being met, and that appropriate resources are available to complete the project.
