    i wanted to know what kind of topics can you choose while you are a busy resident with so little time to spare for research.

    I didn't know you could do research as a resident. Can you explain more? I plan to get an MD MPH, so this kind of research intrigues me. Can you actually get funding as a resident/researcher?

    You may be able to get some internal funding from your department. You will not be able to compete for a real grant as a resident. Generally you will work with a faculty member that already has funding.

    Along with funding from your research mentor, look for grants from your institutional GME, alumni office, or local smaller sources.

    Best of luck with the MPH!
