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 Dr. A S Chughtai, 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.
Under the leadership of Prof. A.S. Chughtai, a research committee is functional at CPMC, which aims at promoting research at undergraduate level. The committee members nominated from every department with a sound research background come up with a complete plan of implementing research activities in all years of medical training. By adding research as an essential component of curriculum, it is obligatory on all the senior faculty members to contribute in inculcating research culture amongst the students. All departments come up with two research topics by involving students in research projects every year.
