At the end of each academic year, we have Annual Research Day were the graduating class of residents are required to participate and present their research project. Residents choose their individual research mentor, who acts as a project supervisor. The resident and mentor work with our Director of Research, Allan Jacobs, MD, and pur research committee to ensure each project is properly designed and conducted. The goal is to generate at least one manuscript that is acceptable for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Residents are train to draft IRB abstracts and are guided along the way to help them achieve this goal.
