Program of Experimental Medicine - POEM
Department of Medicine

Program of Experimental Medicine

POEM’s task is to pull together strategically and operationally the entire research activity of the Department into a single structure. In March 2009, the Department of Medicine Practice (DOM) Plan Members voted to support the creation and implementation of POEM. Accordingly, this is a DOM Practice Plan Member-funded program to support the DOM faculty.

Goals: Provide the research environment and leadership to enable unbridled research excellence and success for the DOM faculty based on the following principles.
  • Measure what we value: Create a structure for the systematic quantification and evaluation of research output and success by the DOM faculty members.
  • Support: Enable research support and core resources to those engaged in research, recognizing the continuum of research abilities, time commitment, and experience.
  • Guide: Provide research focus and direction that avoids silos and encourage teamwork and collaboration among the DOM faculty. Focus on improvements in the mentoring and academic development for our research-committed / intensive junior faculty.
