Faculty of Medicine Research Highlights
  • Research serves as a significant component of FM vision with a strategy aiming at positioning FM as a leading regional research hub.

    At AUB’s Faculty of Medicine (FM), a transformational effort was undertaken to catapult research from the classic individualized research efforts that were taking place into a more cohesive and enabling structure that included appropriate facilities, researchers, and funding. 

    As a Faculty that strives for leadership in excellence and academic standards and values high impact research output, a transformative journey was undertaken for basic, clinical, and translational research.

      FM promotes scholarship in academic medicine and basic medical sciences. The formal types of scholarship that we endorse are: discovery scholarship, application scholarship, integration scholarship, and teaching scholarship. The scholarship of discovery refers to the development of new knowledge and theories. The scholarship of application is the interaction between knowledge and its practical use; translation of evidence to practice and evidence−based practice are some examples in the clinical sciences. The scholarship of integration refers to activities on interdisciplinary approaches where theories generally used in one discipline are applied to objects of study that are typically part of a different field. The scholarship of teaching refers to activities for the design and implementation of approaches that promote student learning. Our 19 departments demonstrate scholarship through different research areas.
