Research during fellowship enhances scholarly development, provides a foundation for logical and critical thinking, and encourages lifelong habits of continuing scholarship post-training. The program’s goal is to provide ample opportunities to plan and perform research related to critical care, in order to present findings at research conferences, publish results in leading medical journal, and foster an interest in a career in academic medicine.
Beginning in the first year of training, fellows are mentored in the choosing of research projects. Research can be done at the Miriam Hospital, Rhode Island Hospital, the Providence VAMC, and it is occasionally done off-site at affiliated labs. Our program’s broad connections through Brown University and the division of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine provide flexibility to help fellows pursue areas of interest at the clinical, translational, and basic science level during their training. Fellows are also frequently involved in case write-ups and review articles or book chapters, if interested.
In cases where fellows wish to stay on for additional years of research, funding can often be obtained through the division, which can offer a T32-funded research training fellowship when appropriate.
Please refer to our Research Programs page for more in-depth information regarding the diverse and varied research opportunities available through our division.
