Incentive Award Program

A major priority for the College of Medicine is to encourage high-quality research and scholarly activities across all levels of clinical practice. To encourage this initiative among physicians-in training, the Dean’s office is developing and will fund a resident research and scholarly activities incentive program that will provide programmatic budgets for residents who are involved in research projects and who publish their work in peer-reviewed journals during their residency training.

To apply to the program, you are required to provide:

  1. Letter from the head or program director to attest the article is based on working during UIC residency and done primarily on UIC campus; the role the resident plays.
  2. Abstract showing the author(s) and affiliation
  3. Official Impact Factor (from Reuters Thomson JCR)

The above needs to be turned into Rachel and she will submit to Phoenix in the Dean’s office.
