We are proud of the fact that more babies are delivered at our Brooklyn hospital than another New York State Hospital.
Clinical Research at Maimonides Medical Center
As an independent teaching hospital, clinical medical and health research is vital to promoting the best clinical care available. Nurses, fellows, residents in training, attending physicians and faculty routinely develop, design and conduct a wide variety of research studies aimed at contributing valuable knowledge and insights to the medical community. Ongoing research is also conducted to evaluate drug efficacy and safety, effectiveness of specific diagnostic tests and validity of both nonsurgical and surgical procedures.
For medical students involved in research at our Brooklyn hospital, their research training programs are included in fellowship and residency programs. Maimonides professionals develop in-person and online courses addressing methodology and study designs vital to fully optimizing a study’s results. Additionally, we also host the Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program every year for fellows working closely with mentors on research studies.
