Research Overview


The Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics are strongly committed to supporting the individualized career development of Medicine-Pediatrics residents.

The University of Rochester Medicine-Pediatrics Residency program offers a research track for residents to pursue mentored scholarly work during their second, third, and fourth years of training. The primary goal of the research track is to provide structured mentorship to complete a scholarly project and develop the skills necessary for future academic careers and/or subspecialty careers. Mentorship is provided to assist with project design, methodology, and implementation.  Residents in the track meet on a regular basis to discuss their ongoing projects with their peers and mentors. The research experience culminates with a peer and faculty reviewed project. With successful completion of this track, residents receive “Distinction in Research” upon graduation.
