Although not all surgeons need to be trained to be independent researchers, understanding the basics of research is a core competency for all practicing surgeons.  Therefore, our training program has developed learning opportunities for residents to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of research.  Additionally, the department will provide mentorship and resources to optimize resident participation in research projects and scholarly activity.  For example, junior residents will be matched with research resident mentors and guided in selecting faculty mentors. Further, residents will have access to a core of departmental experts in education, clinical study design and analysis, and scientific writing.
