Abstract

OBJECTIVES: 1) To describe how internal medicine residency programs fulfill the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) scholarly activity training requirement including the current context of resident scholarly work, and 2) to compare findings between university and nonuniversity programs. DESIGN: Cross-sectional mailed survey. SETTING: ACGME-accredited internal medicine residency programs. PARTICIPANTS: Internal medicine residency program directors. MEASUREMENTS: Data were collected on 1) interpretation of the scholarly activity requirement. 2) support for resident scholarship. 3) scholarly activities of residents. 4) attitudes toward resident research, and 5) program characteristics. University and nonuniversity programs were compared. MAIN RESULTS: The response rate was 78%. Most residents completed a topic review with presentation (median, 100%) to fulfill the requirement. Residents at nonuniversity programs were more likely to complete case reports (median, 40% vs 25%; P=.04) and present at local or regional meetings (median, 25% vs 20%; P=.01), and were just as likely to conduct hypothesis-driven research (median, 20% vs 20%; P=.75) and present nationally (median, 10% vs 5%; P=.10) as residents at university programs. Nonuniversity programs were more likely to report lack of faculty mentors (61% vs 31%; P
