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-intraining,
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
To apply to the program, you are required to provide:
- 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.
- Abstract showing the author(s) and affiliation
- 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.
