This February, residents at Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York City participated in the hospital’s first Resident Research Day. The day was made possible by CIR’s Patient Care Trust Fund and co-sponsored by New York Medical College and Metropolitan Hospital Medical Board. Research projects were presented in the form of forty-five abstracts, twenty-five posters presentations, and three oral presentations. “I think everybody’s been really impressed with the quality of research,” says Dr. Roger Chirurgi, Program Director of the Department of Internal Medicine. “From the residents’ point of view, it’s a sense of commitment from the department, commitment from the hospital in their education.” Watch the video above for more!
