The Department of Surgery is committed to providing excellent research opportunities for their residents. Most residents dedicate 1-2 years between their clinical 3rd and 4th year to pursue their research interests or work on career development. This time is very flexible and can be spent doing anything from basic science research or clinical outcomes research to pursuing an advanced degree in another field. This time is funded by the program and residents are not expected to secure their own funding. The department established the Surgical Research Committee to help align residents with faculty currently involved in research and to provide research/career guidance and mentorship.
