Research and scholarship are important aspects of our program’s commitment to provide an excellent academic environment and move health care forward. Resources include an animal lab for basic, bench research. Other resources include the Center for Urban Population Studies and the Center for Integrative Research on Cardiovascular Aging (CIRCA).
A full-time staff is available to assist with project development, presentation preparation and statistical analysis. Our medical staff, faculty and residents/fellows have completed a great deal of clinical research and quality improvement work, especially in the areas of cardiology, critical care, hematology-oncology and population health.
Aurora now publishes its own quarterly research journal, the Journal of Patient-Centered Research and Reviews, which is indexed in the NML and NIH databases, including PubMed and Medline.
We take pride in the many state and national presentations and publications done by our residents. Residents participate in the annual Wisconsin-chapter American College of Physicians (ACP) educational meetings, usually making up to 15 oral and/or poster presentations per year.
Aurora also sponsors an annual Scientific Day, providing residents and faculty from across our system further opportunities to present research and quality improvement work. Residents interested in an academic career, subspecialty training or simply wishing to experience the excitement and challenge of scholarly pursuits may choose elective research rotations.
