Emphasis on Education
Research for undergraduate and graduate trainees (medical students, residents, and other allied health professionals) is an important component of their educational training. We work with each residency program to help meet requirements for research projects. GRMEP's goal is to expose undergraduate and graduate trainees to research design, theory, and carrying out the project to its conclusion.
Each year, the Education & Research Center sponsors an annual Research Day as a forum to highlight the ongoing basic and clinical research projects of students, residents, and allied health professionals within the Grand Rapids area.
