GME provides the resources necessary for faculty, residents, fellows and
medical students to develop research projects. Scholarly work is an essential
part of any residency training experience. The department provides a wide
array of scholarly opportunities including basic, community research,
QI projects, and development of educational and/or teaching tools. A research
consultant is available to any trainee and faculty to help them develop
their research proposal, the IRB application, and to guide them through
the methodology, analysis and interpretation of data.
Garden City Hospital through GME provides a local
IRB committee to process the applications. All projects must be reviewed by the IRB

faculty) must complete a CITI training and provide prove of completion
to the program coordinator and attached to the IRB application. The training
is valid for three years.
