Research is an essential part of our training program. Our fellows are required to find a mentor during the first few months of training and begin working on their project(s) during their first year. Research time increases significantly during the second year of training and fellows are expected to devote approximately 70% effort to their research project(s).

Research may be in clinical or basic science projects depending on fellow interests.

By the end of the second year of training our fellows are expected to prepare and write-up their research findings and submit them for publication. Presentation of the research findings at regional or national scientific meetings is strongly encouraged.
