Research

The Hospital Medicine Division is primarily a clinical teaching service. However, several HMD faculty conduct research.

  • Dr. Alec O'Connor has completed and is working on projects designed to improve the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of pain management. He is also working on projects intended to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of resident and student education on the inpatient medical service.
  • Dr. Valerie Lang has developed virtual patient modules to improve medical student education and assess their clinical reasoning. She is currently conducting a study of a teaching script faculty development program in collaboration with Drs. Amy Blatt, Kellin King, and Alec O'Connor.
