Our Research Philosophy

Educational Experience is Enhanced by Research

Our faculty believe that every resident can benefit from a formal educational experience in research and they support this concept by allocating time and, if necessary, funds. The structured format is supervised by Dr. Tony Yaksh and includes expert and detailed advice and guidance on how to select, implement, conclude, and publish a project. In addition, a Research Advisory Group provides resources to free a resident from daytime clinical assignments, as well as to provide for technical assistance, equipment and supplies, and space.

Residents are strongly encouraged to consider a research opportunity and to consult with individual faculty and the Research Advisory Group in a timely fashion and to avail themselves of the chance to expand upon their and our knowledge.

Although there is no requirement for every resident to engage in such an endeavor, resident applicants should understand that the faculty feel strongly about the merits of the experience.
