RESEARCH TRAINING

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 committee before collecting any data.

Before submitting a research proposal, all investigators involved (including 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.

GCH is affiliated with Michigan State University, College of Osteopathic Medicine. Our affiliation provides our residents/fellows and faculty with Adjunct Clinical Faculty appointments which allows them to access the MSU Health Sciences Digital Library and other resources such as the CITI training.
