Learning Pathways - Research
Our program has two distinct options to participate in research during residency. The first option is to participate in our research learning pathway for three years of residency.
The objective of the research learning pathway is to expose residents to more intensive research instruction and experiences over the three years of residency.
By the end of three years residents in this pathway will be expected to be able to:
- describe basic types of study design
- sample size calculations
- identify appropriate study methodology
- critically analyze the literature
- develop a research analysis plan
- be able to write a research protocol
- understand the basics of statistical analyses for research
- conduct ethical research
- successful submit a project through the institutional review board, and
- present their work within and outside the institution.
The pathway will involve experiential learning through the conduct of a specific research project under the direction of a faculty mentor. Participants will meet monthly in a journal club and complete on-line and interactive training.
The research pathway will bring together a core group of interested residents under the tutelage of Daniel Schauer, MD, associate program director for research.
At the end of three years it is expected that research learning pathway residents will be well qualified to conduct research during fellowship and future careers.
