Residents may elect one to two research blocks during their training. A wide variety of research opportunities is available to residents both in the Department of Pediatrics and elsewhere in the medical school and community. These range from molecular medicine to clinical studies or community projects. Residents will find faculty eager to help them identify and pursue these research experiences.
The success of this component of the training program is evident in the number of residents who have presented their results at regional and national meetings. This also represents one of the reasons why our residents who are interested in academic careers, have been able to obtain positions in outstanding fellowship programs. Community projects add to the overall professional development of our residents.
