Academic Scholarly Track

The Academic Scholarly Track is intended for residents interested in pursuing a career as an academic practitioner.

Skill sets that we will focus on will include medical education (e.g. clinical teaching, simulation, didactics and innovative education) as well as all aspects of the conduct of medical research.

Requirements for All Scholarly Tracks

All residents will participate in the one hour meeting of the track scheduled during Grand Rounds each module.​ Absences will only be excused based upon Residency Program Guidelines for Grand Rounds attendance.
