Research - Our Investment in the Future

Research is defined as the careful and diligent search for knowledge and experience to help expand basic scientific understanding, grow the practice of medicine, and ultimately improve the delivery of healthcare.

Akron General physicians, residents and medical students benefit from collaboration with a team of research professionals, who are available to assist in all areas of the research process. These include project development, technical procedures, data analysis, grant applications and preparing presentations and publications. Patients benefit from access to preventive and cutting edge therapies and devices. The community benefits because we continually strive to incorporate research into everyday practice and use research to identify the most up-to-date treatments for patients.

Akron General Medical Center has over fifty years of graduate and undergraduate medical education experience with hundreds of physician academicians trained in an atmosphere of academic inquiry, scholarly activity and patient centered care. That legacy continues today with over one hundred and fifty resident physicians participating in training, an affiliation with a major medical school, and over one hundred medical students per year participating in one of our many academic teaching teams.
