Completion of a clinical, basic science or educational research project is a requirement for graduation. Many of the department's clinical and basic scientists would be delighted to mentor a resident's project. Up to $2,500 in departmental funds may be requested to finance the work. Results of the research are presented during the Senior Research Seminar in May of the 4th year of residency. A prize is awarded for the best project.
At the PGY1-4 training levels, each resident has one half day each week in the Resident Continuity outpatient clinic. A team of residents is assigned each afternoon. The resident clinics are designed to function with a great deal of autonomy. Ob-Gyn generalist faculty members are available on site for staffing and consultation.
