Scholarly Activity

Dr. Stephen Rennard at White Board

Fellows engage in scholarly activity and a range of clinical and bench research, as well as Quality Improvement projects.

Fellows may select a project and use up to 10 months of elective time to initiate and complete the project.

Completion of an online fellow research symposium is required and a research committee will help the first-year fellow select a project and mentor.

Fellows are encouraged to attend one national meeting per year, paid for by the division, with the expectation that an abstract will be submitted to the meeting.
