Resident Research Is a Priority
All pediatric residents receive foundational training in research principles and quality improvement through a longitudinal research curriculum. Residents have 2 weeks in the intern year to explore and develop basic research skills. Residents have an additional week in the second and third years to build on introductory concepts as they design and implement their own research or QI project.
We establish mentoring relationships for trainees and invested and engaging faculty throughout the research process.
Residents with a special interest in research can participate in the PRIME Research curriculum led by dynamic physician scientists. The nationally recognized longitudinal research curriculum allows trainees to hone additional research skills and manuscript development.
Residents showcase their work at the annual Resident Research Day. PGY-3 residents are required to present their research, while PGY-1 and PGY-2 residents are invited to participate in the event. Click here to view the Resident Research Day 2023 program.
We strongly encourage residents to present original research at regional and national scholarly meetings. The Office of Education and clinical divisions are proud to provide funding to support residents presenting their work.
