Resident Scholarly Activity

Research is a vital part of our curriculum here at MUSC. We have world renowned faculty mentors to provide guidance and inspire our residents.  Department leadership is supportive of residents taking time for research endeavors.

Additionally, there is organized research infrastructure designed to facilitate resident involvement:

  • Database of ongoing research projects allows residents to easily find projects and mentors in line with their interests. There is never a shortage of projects to choose from.  The same database also assists in recruiting interested medical students.
  • Funding and time provided to attending national meetings
  • Protected time for scholarly activity throughout residency in the form of research elective rotations as well as individual scholarly activity days
  • Access to professional statisticians
  • Imaging/data retrieval software

All residents undertake at least one mentored research project during residency, and the majority of residents choose to pursue multiple projects. Residents with particular interest in research can pursue a Distinction in Research graduation tract.

We our proud of the work our residents have contributed to the field. See just a few of our resident's recent publications:
