CPMC has a very strong focus on research which forms the cornerstone of modern day medical education. Students are encouraged to undertake research work and funding is also made available to projects having potential clinical impact. A remarkable accomplishment of the CRC, under the patronage of the dean, has been the launch of CPMC's own medical journal by the name of 'Journal of Central Park Medical College' (JCPMC). Work on the first issue of the journal has already begun.
