All residents present a research project on a designated resident research day at the end of their third year of residency.
This is attended by a large number of faculty and nearly all residents. The graduating senior class also invites a Visiting Professor for a lecture presentation. Clinics and elective surgeries are not scheduled for this day. Each resident has a faculty mentor who assists and advises the resident in the conduct and presentation of this project. Residents submit written proposals for research, with an identified mentor, by the end of the PGY-2. There is a six-week elective rotation block in the PGY-2, which may be used as research time, or the resident may conduct his or her research during other times of the year.
