Scholarly Activity

​ One of the requirements of our training program and of the ACGME is that residents participate and submit scholarly activities. We want you to be engaged in scholarship and find what it can offer you!

Our residency has an excellent track record of sending housestaff to the national and local meetings. 

We are excited that the new 4+4 schedule has provided dedicated time for your scholarly work.  Outlined below are the goals, sources of support and detailed expectations by PGY.


  1. To produce at least one large* and one small** product of scholarly activity over the three years of residency (please see Scholarly Activity Overview for many more).  
  2. To engage in the mentoring process both as a mentee and mentor.
  3. To be exposed to various types of scholarly activity and explore what you enjoy!
