Research Elective: The Kaweah Delta Research Center directs research for all academic and clinical departments within the Kaweah Delta Health Care System. This unique arrangement, most individual departments have their own research program, allows for a truly integrated approach to research. Rotating medical students can arrange to spend all or part of their elective time in any of the participating departments (Emergency Medicine, Psychiatry, Family Medicine, Surgery, and Radiology) as most ongoing studies are multi-disciplinary. Students will work directly with the medical center’s research director and other faculty involved in research projects. Students are expected to arrange their project prior to their arrival in Visalia so that may be spend time here actively working on the project. Most students should expect to work five days a week while on the rotation with their time being divided between small group, discussions, study design, and the data collection and analysis. Schedules may be arranged and are designed to be flexible to fit the needs of the student and their research project. It is expected that the rotating student will be involved in the presentation and /or publication of date derived from their work sometime after their rotation. Thus, most students will be able to present at medical society meetings and will like have the opportunity to be published.
