Research is a vital component of the residency program. A curriculum has been established to hone resident research skills and knowledge with ample research opportunities and resources while providing residents with dedicated, protected time for their clinical research. The department has a research team that serves as mentors and resources for residents. Protected research time is tailored to resident needs and interests and is most often arranged during PGY3-PGY5. Every resident is expected to have submitted a manuscript for publication by the end of residency.

Residents in our department have been very productive and successful with their research endeavors. Each resident has one or more abstract acceptances to national conferences and many have manuscript submissions.

Resident Research Showcase

We are very proud of our resident research efforts, and want to showcase their projects! The Annual Resident Research Showcase is held during the annual ISTRO meeting. This allows residents to present their posters to meeting participants while also giving them experience and feedback on their presentation and poster before they present at ASTRO.

PGY4-5 Research Opportunities

Some residents choose to continue their research endeavors more in-depth. Residents can select to do a Clinical Research Pathway or apply for the Holman Pathway for those who want a career as a physician investigator and are interested in basic science, clinical or translational research.
