Resident research is under the direction of the Resident Research Committee, comprised of faculty members from each division, in addition to selected members from outside departments. There is a structured and substantial clinical research program as well as a productive and well-focused basic science program. Residents are exposed to every aspect of these research endeavors. Each resident is required to perform their own research project during residency, with the guidance of a faculty research advisor.
For first year residents, online institutional training is required, as well as creating or identifying your research interests and being assigned a research mentor. In the second year, residents are required to present a research poster, which outlines their projects that are underway. Research projects are completed in the third year of residency, and a formal presentation is given at our Annual Resident Resesarch Day, which is held in the Spring each year. In the final year of residency, residents are required to submit a manuscript of their research, in publication format.
