Residents are expected to participate in research endeavors during their residency. Research has involved been performed in arenas including both clinical and basic science projects.
Competitively awarded fellowships administered by the Department of Pediatrics are available to support additional clinical, translational or basic science research training. We aim to foster reseach endeavors during residency that will help position those interested in pursuing research career development award.
