Internal Medicine Research
Clinical Epidemiology and Community Health Group
A letter from Dr. Abe E. Sahmoun, Director of Research Affairs
Welcome to Epidemiology and Community Health Group at the Department of Internal Medicine of the University of North Dakota School of Medicine (UNDSM). We have identified two distinctive aims for this collaborative group:
- Enhance scholarly activities: this consists of improving 4th year medical students, residents and community clinical faculty publications/presentations; and
- Promote clinical research: this will be achieved by bringing together the community clinical faculty expertise and researchers into a unified and concerted action on disease prevention and quality of care.
We have established collaborations with colleagues from the UND departments, the ND USDA branch, the ND state health department, University of South Dakota, Wake Forest University, and University of Washington. Most of the team members also participate in the teaching mission of the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
We relish the opportunity to actively engage the clinicians and the researchers in efforts to further improve the health of the North Dakota communities and quality of care through scientific studies.
Although only recently formed, the Clinical Epidemiology and Community Health Group has already identified a unique role for itself within the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and looks forward to achieving its goal of expanding and reaching national recognition in clinical research.
I appreciate your visit and I look forward to sharing our accomplishments with you in the near future.
Abe E. Sahmoun, Ph.D.
Director of Research Affairs
