The Department of Medicine and Internal Medicine Residency Program view physician scientists as critical to the advancement of medicine through the expertise of clinical medicine and biomedical research. We support the training of research scientist through the ABIM Research Pathway. The divisions of Hematology-Oncology, Pulmonary Critical Care, Cardiology, Nephrology, Infectious Disease, Endocrinology and Nephrology are ready to support the training pathway of interested candidates. This pathway permits a resident to satisfy training requirements for certification in Internal Medicine and their chosen subspecialty plus an additional 2-3 years of research training. We look forward to supporting you in the next stage of your career.
Once ERAS opens, we will reach out to candidates who hold a PhD and ask that they complete a supplemental questionnaire to help us learn more about their specific research and specialty areas of interest, as well as any interest in the ABIM Research Pathway. If you are not a PhD and are interested in the ABIM Research Pathway, please reach out to Dena Dowhaniuk, Educational Programs Manager, so that she may make a note in your application and send you the supplemental questionnaire.
I am greatly honored to lead the Department of Medicine in this exciting time of expansion in all our mission areas.
We will continue to expand our clinical activities, sustaining and building upon our commitment to the highest quality patient care and growing to take advantage of new clinical opportunities. We remain dedicated to caring both for the population of Oregon and for others coming to Portland for cutting edge treatments.
At the same time we will continue to explore new approaches to the diagnosis and management of disease, fostering a vibrant research portfolio and partnering with other clinical and basic science departments, as well as with our Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute. Our physicians and physician-scientists work side by side with basic and translational researchers to better understand the mechanisms of disease, and to design and test new treatments. As a fellow physician scientist, I enjoy the same camaraderie in my research and see the benefits of an institution who is committed to furthering innovation and scientific discovery.
We are excited that you are interested in joining our residency and fellowship programs in order to further your scientific and clinical career. We will support your career interest, find the best mentors and help you achieve success in the next phase of becoming a physician scientist.
It is a privilege to lead such an outstanding group of colleagues, students, and co-workers in the Department of Medicine and we look forward to you becoming a part of that group.
