Abstract

The authors investigated two of the causes of and possible remedies for low research activity (as measured by rate of publication) of faculty members in a division of general internal medicine at a university hospital and its affiliated Veterans Administration medical center. They did this by analyzing information about the faculty in the health center“s records spanning a 16-year period. This 1989 study suggests that the general medicine faculty members who are also involved in subspecialties and who have protected research time can improve their research productivity.
