Scholarly Activity and WellSpan Discovery Day
Though primarily a community hospital, WellSpan York Hospital and the Internal Medicine Residency Program both have a long tradition of strong engagement in research and other scholarly activities. . In addition to our faculty, the WellSpan Research Center provides support (project design and implementation, statistical analysis and manuscript creation/submission) for scholarly activity ranging from case reports to quality improvement projects to prospective clinical trials (and everything in between) .
Each spring, residents present their research work at WellSpan Discovery Day, which showcases scholarly activity across WellSpan’s training programs. Residents and faculty also frequently present their scholarly work at local, regional, national and even international meetings .
Institutional support is provided for residents who are invited to present their research at meetings and the time spent away from the residency is not deducted from vacation time.
