Clinical research often leads to the publication of abstracts, which are short summaries of the study’s findings. Abstracts are typically presented at scientific conferences, such as the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) or American College of Physicians (ACP) or American College of Cardiology (ACC) or published in medical journals. Abstracts are an important way to disseminate the results of clinical research to a wider audience, including other researchers, clinicians, and the general public. They provide a brief overview of the study design, methods, results, and conclusions, and can be a useful way to quickly identify studies that may be relevant to a particular topic or research question. Abstracts are typically written in a structured format, with specific sections for background, methods, results, and conclusions. They are often limited in length, ranging from a few hundred to a thousand words, depending on the requirements of the conference or journal. We have CLINICAL RESEARCH rotations: Duration – of 4 weeks Mentors – Under the guidance of University researchers who are Ph.D. or Faculty members. Our mentors are from prestigious university programs with residencies like University of Chicago, Northwestern Memorial Hospital Medical Center, Stanford University, Yale university and University of Oklahoma Medical center. A mentor as above is assigned to you. You will work with the mentor for about an hour a day or every other day via zoom or phone or email. Under their supervision and guidance, you will generate clinical topics for research analysis. The mentors will help and guide you to convert your analysis into abstracts or write ups which will then be submitted to scientific forums, societies and conferences as abstracts or for publications in journals. At the end of the month our students usually have 1-4 abstracts submitted/published. Their recommenders will also give them a letter of recommendation on their University Hospital letterheads along with their designations.
RESEARCH IS CONSIDERED VERY IMPORTANT BY PROGRAM DIRECTORS AND MARKEDLY INCREASES THE CHANCE TO SUCCESSFULLY GET INTO A RESIDENCY PROGRAM.
