Scholarly Project

While in residency, you will be required to present a scholarly activity project. You are expected to work on this project during the first two years of residency and presenting during your third year before graduation. You will discuss the progress on your project every six months during your evaluation meeting with your advisor and program director. Following are the research projects that were presented in June 2013 by our senior residents.
