Research for Residents & Fellows (R4RF)
This 10-week series, 2-credit graduate-level course, is an introduction to research for medical residents and fellows. Mini didactics are followed by vigorous interactive small group sessions. Interdepartmental teams, established on day one, remain together throughout the series. Team work activity focuses on concept application, giving participants a "hands on" experience with various topics: 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, appropriate study design, biostatistical analysis, human subjects research considerations and IRB issues.
Senior faculty researchers have chosen the following 2017 Winners:
Outstanding Capstone Award: Dr. Divyasri Gongireddy, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellow - "Does the use of Watsom Rooms help improve burnout symptoms in resident/fellow physicians?"
Capstone Excellence Award: Dr. Jonathan Berkman, Internal Medicine PGY-2 - "Comparison of medical record medication discrepancies performed by pharmacy versus admitting provider"
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.
