Each resident is required to complete a research project of presentable quality prior to graduation.
The goals of the resident research project:
- Allow each resident to take part in a research project from beginning to end, from formulation of a research project idea, to understanding the structure of submitting a research project for institutional approval, to seeing a project through data collection, analysis, and hopefully publication/presentation in a national forum.
- Create mentorship's between residents and faculty. The resident will be paired with a faculty mentor to guide them through the research process. But we also hope the resident and faculty member will develop a professional relationship that will serve as an asset as the resident grows into an independent emergency physician.
- Give residents the opportunity to explore their impressions of academic emergency medicine in an informed way, and assess desirability of this as a future practice setting.
The resident research projects are structured to attempt to help the resident complete on time. We meet with each resident to brainstorm research ideas while making this a flexible process. Our goal is for the resident to enjoy the project they will be working on so that they maximize the ownership of the research and understand the process. As the project proceeds, we continue to meet with and support the resident along the way to modulate, reassess and encourage the resident in their process
Ultimately, we are committed to insuring everyone’s time is spent on a rewarding process that can help the resident be successful.
