Setting Your Research on the Right Track
There are many opportunities to participate in research ranging from molecular biology to outcome assessments. Monthly research conferences are held to educate residents on 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.
