Residents are exposed and encouraged to participate in our academic environment through teaching and research. Every resident will be required to get involved in some form of scholarly activity within the department.
Residents will prepare presentations for the journal club and educational conferences on a rotating basis. There are many opportunities for residents to be involved in research. Residents are not only encouraged to participate in ongoing research with faculty members, but also to explore ideas that may result in research projects and publications. This is considered a valuable learning experience and an important part of the residency program, regardless of the eventual practice setting for the individual resident. The academic work may also include development or improvement of clinical diagnostic methods and reviews of existing literature. (see Resident Manual for research and clinical interests of each faculty member).
