The Divisions of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at MSSL, MSW and MSBI provide ample opportunities for clinical, epidemiological, quality improvement, medical simulation, medical education and basic science research. Our faculty and fellows are engaged in a broad-range of investigations, with opportunities to collaborate with investigators throughout the Mount Sinai Health System.
During the first year of training, fellows meet with the Program Director to identify research and career interests and to establish a research mentor. Research projects are then integrated over three years with up to 6 months in dedicated research time during the third year.
All fellows complete our Quality Improvement (QI) Curriculum. This program provides a foundation in the science of QI and the application of principles to improve quality, patient safety and value in health care. Fellows develop and lead individual and group QI projects in pulmonary or critical care.
Resources for research include IRB guidance and availability of statistical support, system-wide research symposia and system-wide research education seminars. Fellows receive support to present their work at national, local and regional conferences.
