ResearchRoundUp: Year End 2016

It’s been an amazing 2016 for the UTSW residency with a phenomenal class of interns joining us, a 100% internal medicine board pass rate and a 100% fellowship match rate.

We want to take this opportunity to also recognize some of the phenomenal scholarly work of our Internal Medicine residents in the last months.
