In pursuit of academic excellence and scholarly activity, our residency program requires each resident to initiate a research project with the goal of completion of the research and publication of the results.  The resident is allowed to select the research topic based on his/her particular area of interest. Each resident will have a faculty advisor to assist them in their project. Residents also have patient safety/quality improvement projects which continue throughout their training.
