Scholarship and Research


Residents Ady Ravindra and Madalyn Walsh at the 2023 Midwest Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) conference

Our residency program will immerse you in scholarship that is informed by your own curiosity.  Throughout residency, all of our residents complete at least one scholarly activity.  Our residents are provided the opportunity for dedicated research time during their second and third years to pursue scholarship activity.  With this culture of scholarship, our residents regularly present their findings at conferences at local, regional, and national levels and publish articles in significant scholarly journals.

For residents interested in making research a larger focus of their future career, we are one of only a handful of residencies nationally that offers the Stimulating Access to Research during Residency (StARR) program and we also offer the Physician Scientist Training Pathway (PSTP).

At Iowa, we recognize that mentorship is a key aspect of helping residents achieve their scholarship goals while in residency.  We invite you to learn more about  We work to find a good mentor fit that shares your interests.
