Scholarship Done by Residents

Throughout residency, all of our residents complete a scholarly activity. At Iowa, we use a broad definition of scholarship that includes all of our residents’ academic interests. The scholarly activity can take the form of a case report, research article, or commentary published in a scientific journal, a poster presentation at a local, regional, or national meeting, or a curricular development project. This is not an exhaustive list. The scholarly activity is flexible and is individualizable to our residents’ interests.

See the list below of journal articles published by our residents from 2018-2023.
