Research training and scholarly activity during residency can be very rewarding for residents. It helps residents gain skills in evidence-based medicine, get into top fellowship programs, and build foundation for lifelong learning and continued scholarly work. At the UM Capital Region Health, we have a structured clinical research training curriculum and a basic roadmap to scholarly activity.

In addition, residents have opportunities to work with mentors on original research, systematic review and meta-analysis. Residents are encouraged to present their research findings at professional meetings and publish in peer-reviewed journals.
