Emergency Medicine

Resident Research Listing


All residents are required to complete a research project during their residency which is presented in an annual residency research day.  Residents take CITI certification to perform research as part of their training. CITI training is the information module on human subjects’ protection. Our monthly journal club provides education to the residents regarding formulating research questions, methodology, and data analysis.  All residents have a faculty advisor on their project to provide mentorship.
