Scholarly Activity

Scholarly activity is a key component of our residency training program. As part of a large academic health center, many basic and translational research opportunities are available for our residents. Over the course of training, each of our residents will complete two Quality Improvement projects, one research project, and at least one additional scholarly activity (case report, regional presentation, etc). The Department hosts an annual Quality Improvement and Research Symposium each Spring in which residents present their QI projects.

Research can be conducted during the elective time or concurrently with other rotations.

Several awards are available to support resident research

Travel Grant

Residents who are presenting posters or oral presentations at a professional meeting can also apply for a Travel Grant to support expenses for the meeting. A Travel Grant supports up to $2500 in professional expenses related to attending a meeting.

Research Award

Funds of up to $10,000 are available to support the investigative activities of trainees. Residents and fellows are encouraged to submit grant applications along with a faculty mentor as Primary Investigator. There are 3 deadlines for acceptance of applications annually.
