Scholarship Curriculum

The goals of our Scholarship Curriculum are:

  • To train residents to integrate evidence-based medicine into the care of their patients through introduction to research, statistics, and critical appraisal of scholarship in medicine
  • To train residents to be able to present their research in abstract form and provide support to residents with goals of further contributions to research

The Scholarship Curriculum for MUSC Pediatric Residency consists of a series of lectures during Academic Half Day including a ‘Scholarship in Practice’ in practice series and a ‘Statistics for Clinicians’ core. In addition, residents will participate and present in a departmental journal club of their choice. All residents will have an opportunity to present a research abstract and poster during their second year at the South Carolina American Academy of Pediatrics Meeting. In addition, the Department of Pediatrics holds an annual Darby Children’s Research Day in the Spring in which many residents present their work alongside faculty and fellows. Many of our residents present their work at national meetings and have participated in research that has been published in peer reviewed articles.
