research-11All residents are strongly encouraged to be involved in a series of research projects throughout their training. The completion of at least one such project is a requirement for graduation from the residency program.

The inclusion of research in the residency curriculum serves several purposes. First, it gives residents the opportunity to learn the principles of study design and statistical analysis. Second, it teaches residents to develop realistic research objectives and to allocate the necessary time for the project's progress and success. Finally, it gives residents added experience in public speaking and in the development of visual presentations.

Faculty mentors provide support and guidance throughout the endeavor. Research projects should result in an abstract or manuscript that is submitted for presentation at a national meeting or for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The Office of Graduate Medical Education offers funding to support the presentation of research at conferences or meetings.
