Research for Pediatric Residents

The Residency Training Committee believes research to be an essential part of the residency training program. It is expected that all pediatric trainees will complete at least one scholarly project during their three core years of training. Residents may choose to do a short or long-term project on advocacy, quality assurance, medical education, clinical or basic science or research. Suggestions and guidance are offered by faculty members and by the Residency Research Committee. Residents may schedule protected research time into their rotation. They may take one half day a week during their PGY2 & PGY3 years on non-core rotation or may choose to use a elective block as a research block. There is a mandatory Critical Appraisal Course integrated into the academic ½ day.
