Inspiring and Supporting Research
In the School of Medicine, Research Interest Groups help support research projects by inspiring potential areas of inquiry and vetting proposed topics.
Medical students and other learners seeking research opportunities and mentors are encouraged to attend Research Interest Groups, which work to improve research quality, give learners access to research projects, form research teams and help faculty find students to mentor.
Attend Meetings in Omaha or Phoenix
Meetings are held in-person and virtually and are open to all our students, residents, fellows and faculty from both campuses.
Topics covered during a meeting may include:
- Scientific merit review, trial design considerations and involvement in supporting the study for studies under consideration
- Difficulties with IRB submissions for and enrollment issues for ongoing studies
- Analysis and writing for completed studies
How to Join a Research Interest Group
Meetings are held both in-person and virtually at Creighton’s Omaha and Phoenix campuses. All students, residents, fellows and faculty can attend meetings of interest to identify research opportunities and mentorship.
Research Interest Groups use a team-based approach to bring depth and longevity to research projects. This results in proposals of greater scope and significance, making it easier to complete quality projects that result in peer-reviewed manuscripts.
Monthly Research Brainstorming Sessions
Creighton University faculty, fellows, residents and students actively engaged or interested in pursuing research may attend virtual monthly research brainstorming meetings. These sessions feature research projects in development that bridge basic science and clinical research.
Held monthly on a designated Friday at 12:30 p.m. CT, sessions encourage development of faculty-initiated research projects, connect collaborators across disciplines and campuses, and lead to competitive proposals for funding.
