Residents can spend up to two months during their residency training participating in research projects of their own selection. Houston Methodist offers an ideal environment for scientists and clinicians to come together with common goals of discovery and improving patient care. Over 690 clinical trials spread throughout nine departments (cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammation and epigenetics, diabetes and metabolic disease, infectious disease, neurosciences, transplantation biology, genomic medicine, and tissue engineering and regenerative medicine) are ongoing. Research mentors are available to help residents find opportunities in areas that most closely match their interests. Search our faculty >
Houston Methodist emphasizes the pursuit of research, including publications and presentations, and residents are able to work together with our well-recognized research mentors on projects.
