Current Resident Research Projects

All residents will complete a scholarly activity project prior to the end of residency. During the PGY1 year, the introductory scholarly activity curriculum is built into the Community Pediatrics rotation. During the PGY2 year, residents have protected research time during certain blocks to complete the bulk of their project in preparation for presentation during the PGY3 year. A research curriculum is woven throughout the second and third year didactic sessions. Resident scholarly activity includes projects in advocacy, curriculum development, clinical research and quality improvement.
