Internal Medicine - General


General Medicine


Research Program

The division offers a two-year fellowship for board-certified or board-eligible internists and pediatricians to provide them with the academic skills and academic credentials necessary to assume leadership positions in educational programs in medical schools and residency programs. Formal instruction is provided in teaching skills (small group teaching, conducting teaching rounds, lectures, etc.), research skills (designing and implementing a research project, analysis, data collection and other methodologies, how to write abstracts, papers and grants, etc.) and administrative skills (how to budget a division or course, the promotion and tenure process, etc.).

Given that the historic strength of our division is educational research, most fellows will be engaged in this line of scholarship, although the methodologies learned can apply to a wider realm of research (health services research, epidemiology, etc.).  Fellows are expected to pursue Master's level coursework at our graduate school, attaining a degree in public health, education, business, or health administration.  Fellows should leave the fellowship with two major projects completed, 2-4 manuscripts completed or in preparation in their line of work, pilot data for grant submissions, and several presentations at regional and national meetings.  As such, fellows will have the skills and the academic credentials to assume tenure track (or equivalent) faculty  positions.  

Recent graduates include Jeremy Pripstein (now faculty at Rush University in Chicago), Gregg Talente (East Carolina), Ricky Bass (LSU - Shreveport), Lynn Jefferies (Baylor), Chris Feddock (Kentucky), Andrew Hoellein (Kentucky), Paula Bailey (Kentucky), Angela Dearinger (Kentucky), Kristy Deep (Kentucky) and Don Barnett (Kansas City VA Medical Center).
