Answer: “Bench” research – in a laboratory setting, possibly involving chemicals, drug delivery systems, tissue samples, or animal subjects

Clinical research – patient centered research that may be retrospective or prospective, dealing withdiseases, medications, or patient outcomes

Social/Administrative – dealing with perceptions, behaviors, ethics, and marketing in healthcare

Pedagogical – studying teaching and learning

 

2. What are the benefits of participating in research while a student?

Answer: Participating in research has multiple benefits beyond adding lines to your résumé or CV.  You will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with CPHS faculty and contribute to the creation of knowledge in healthcare and education.  In addition, research can help you sharpen your critical thinking skills, extend your education beyond the classroom, and enhance your confidence in your professional abilities.  You will also be able to explore your own interests to help clarify your professional goals including preparation for graduate school, residencies, and fellowships.
