Resident Research is an important aspect of our residency. Each resident is required to complete a research project.  Research is an opportunity for our residents to enhance their fellowship application, experience clinical research and publish data in a medical journal. Residents participate in lectures on topics such as study design, evaluation of literature, abstract design, and giving a an oral presentation. Each resident is encouraged to identify a research mentor and is provided with an overview of on-going research.  This foundation is used to support idea generation and the development of an IRB with subsequent  data collection and evaluation to complete a research project

At our annual Resident Research Day, residents showcase their final product to faculty and guest judges. In addition, the winners receive an educational allotment. Our residents have published in scientific journals and presented their abstracts at national meetings such as: SGO, AUGS, SMFM, ACOG, ASRM and IDSOG.
