Residency Research

Welcome from the Research Director

Petty William Jeffrey

The need for productive, rewarding research during house staff training is recognized as a priority by accreditation bodies, our faculty, and our residents.  The Wake Forest School of Medicine Internal Medicine residency program is structured to enable residents to conduct research projects that are of interest and of relevance to their medical education. Most of our Internal Medicine residents take advantage of this opportunity and either assist or lead research projects sometime during their three year residency. The Tinsley R. Harrison Program is designed to offer a more in-depth research experience for residents who are considering academic careers as clinical researchers or physician scientists. Residents selected for the program are provided with additional protected research time and didactic research training in a small group setting. Although not an absolute requirement, previous research experience is of value.
