Ascension Saint Thomas and the University of Tennessee will support research for the Internal Medicine program through the Ascension Saint Thomas Research Institute (ASTRI). ASTRI provides a robust clinical research infrastructure to support pharmaceutical and device clinical trials, translational research and comparative effectiveness research that addresses clinical questions in a wide array of diseases, interventions, and populations. Residents and faculty have access to dedicated staff to assist in the assessment of research projects, statistical design, protocol development, clinical research coordinators and support staff to manage data and publication creation and review. Throughout the year our residents have the opportunity to present their work at local, state, and national conferences including the Ascension Saint Thomas Annual Resident Research Day.
