Clinical Investigator Residency Track

The clinical investigator residency track of the Internal Medicine Residency program in NYU Langone’s Department of Medicine provides in-depth training and mentoring to prepare physicians for careers in translational, clinical, and population-based research.

The program incorporates three years of dedicated research training into the Internal Medicine Residency curriculum with mentoring from research faculty. Our graduates successfully transition into independent careers in academic medicine or continue their research during a fellowship. Many go on to make research discoveries that improve patient care.

The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) code for the clinical investigator residency track is 2978140C2.

Clinical Investigator Track Details

As a resident on the clinical investigator track, you receive extensive mentoring from a physician–scientist or physician who performs clinical research. Leadership from the clinical investigator track meet with you early in your intern year to help you identify potential mentors and to facilitate introductions on your behalf. Your mentor is active in your subspecialty area of interest and oversees your career development. You also meet with a mentoring committee that assesses your research goals and progress and offers research advice and guidance.

You have opportunities to enroll in courses and programs offered through various NYU Langone departments, institutes, and centers. All residents on the clinical investigator track complete Intensive Training in Research Statistics, Ethics, and Protocol Informatics and Design (INTREPID), a three-and-a-half–week course offered through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute that covers clinical and research methods, biostatistics, bioinformatics, programming, and ethical conduct.

Residents who transition into a subspecialty fellowship program at NYU Langone after completing the clinical investigator track may choose to pursue an MS in Clinical Investigation, also through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, or a certificate in comparative effectiveness implementation research through the Department of Population Health.
