Research is a key and vital part of the resident experience at Mount Carmel. Our curriculum is designed to advance your knowledge of research, including how research is conducted, evaluated, explained to patients, and applied to patient care. We also provide exceptional educational resources to facilitate your involvement in these scholarly activities.
The Research Process
All resident research studies go through the following phases (some of which can happen concurrently):
- Development of a useful and testable research question
- Literature review
- Construction of the protocol (a detailed plan for how the study will be carried out)
- Research ethics training
- Institutional Review Board review of the study plan
- Data collection
- Statistical analysis of data
- Interpretation of findings/abstract and manuscript submission
The Office of Research Affairs at Mount Carmel has experts who can work with you to develop your protocol, estimate the number of patients (or participants) you'll need, and analyze the data once it's collected. Depending on the type of study, funding through the Mount Carmel Foundation and/or research nurse support may also be available. We can also help guide you through the Institutional Review Board submission process.
