In an effort to foster research collaborations and discussions within Internal Medicine and beyond, and to inform DOIM faculty and trainees of research across the department, a monthly Internal Medicine Research Seminar Series has been established.  The series will cover the breadth of research taking place in Internal Medicine, with each seminar to showcase the research of IM faculty in an interactive and informal format. The entire continuum of research will be represented: from bench to clinical to population and implementation science. 

Research Seminars will be held on the first Wednesday of each month (with a few exceptions), 12:00 - 1:00 pm, in the Health Sciences Education Building (HSEB). Lunch will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. 

2021 Schedule – Divisions or programs will assume responsibility for seminar presentations as indicated below, with further information to be posted as it becomes available.
