There are many opportunities to participate in research ranging from molecular biology to outcome assessments. Monthly research conferences are held to educate residents in basic research skills. Although not a specific requirement, residents may choose to engage in research and are assigned a faculty mentor to help them complete a research project. Department funds are available for resident-led research and each resident who chooses to complete a research project is encouraged to present findings at regional and national meetings.
Each resident makes a decision about active involvement in research as a resident. No matter what the decision, experienced faculty researchers are available at UAMS and ACH to provide residents with individual learning opportunities.
