Research for Residents & Fellows (R4RF)

This 10-week series is designed to be an introduction to research for medical residents and fellows. Mini didactics are followed by vigorous interactive small group interactions. Small interdepartmental teams are established on day one and remain together throughout the series. All team work activity focuses on the application of concepts so that participants get "hands on" experience with topics such as formulating a research question, choosing a study design, experimenting with sampls size calculators, designing a survey, and writing an IRB proposal. The course culminates with a required brief "Capstone" project for which each participant expands on a research hypothesis of interest, including appropriate study design, biostatistical analysis, human subjects research considerations and IRB issues. Capstone projects are scored by senior faculty researchers and prizes are awarded for 1st and 2nd place entries.

Summer 2016 is the first time this series is being offered as a 2-credit graduate-level course. Enrollment is currently closed.

Resident/Fellow Research Day

Held on the first Thursday of each June, this symposium is intended to recognize residents and clinical fellows in all departments making significant contributions to the institution in terms of research. Additionally, it acts as a forum whereby both residents and faculty can learn more about research activities in other departments. The day is co-sponsored by the Department of Otolaryngology and the Office of Graduate Medical Education.
