In our program, resident Nikhil Agrawal, MD, right, sharpens his clinical and critical thinking skills via scholarly projects with mentors like Umesh Sharma, MD, PhD.

We support your research interests with up to three months of dedicated research time during your training.

Whether your interest is in clinical, basic science, translational or medical education research, we offer you a wide range of expertise and project opportunities with distinguished, experienced faculty. In your second and third years, you may take up to three-months of cumulative research electives to design and carry out independent work. We offer robust support and provide opportunities for you to collaborate with librarians and statisticians. 

Some residents carry an independent project to publication or presentation at national meetings, while others get involved with larger, ongoing research at our school. These opportunities give you a competitive edge when you apply for fellowships or continue on into an academic career.

Present Your Work

Throughout the year, resident research presentations give you the opportunity to present your work to your peers and a group of experienced faculty. The feedback you receive during these presentations is valuable to the further development of your project.
