Resident and Fellows Research Course

The Resident & Fellows Research Course is designed to teach residents and fellows the fundamentals of developing and conducting a research study.  The course consists of a combination of didactic lectures and small group workshops.  The course is held in Block 5 of each academic year.

  1. Overview

    Throughout the 4-week course, residents will take an idea for a research project and develop a proposal.  There will be ample time set aside for independent work to ensure that residents make progress on their project.
