Resident Research

Residents participate in basic science, clinical, and surgical education research projects alongside our faculty. 

Resident Research Requirements

Research Project

Each resident is required to complete a research or review article in conjunction with a faculty mentor and will be encouraged to submit it for publication and presentation at meetings. The projects require approval from the Program Director, may involve a pre-existing or a new activity, and must be submitted as a document of publishable quality for evaluation and review before graduation.

Research Symposium

During the annual Plastic Surgery Research Symposium, residents have the opportunity to showcase what they have learned through their research experience each year. The residents present before a panel of judges comprised of plastic surgery faculty and research staff who evaluate based on the principles below:

  • Significance and Originality
  • Organization
  • Presentation
  • Knowledge of Material
  • Visual Presentation
