Poster presentation at the 2022 AAP Conference

The University of Maryland Pediatrics training programs are committed to producing well-rounded and well-trained pediatricians. We believe that participating in research is an important part of every pediatrician's training. Each resident in our programs is required to complete a research project in the area of his/her choice. Projects range from basic science bench research to clinical studies, quality improvement initiatives, and health policy projects. The Department of Pediatrics is in the top 10 of state-funded schools for research grants, and our faculty are eager to work with residents. The program leadership works with residents to identify an area of interest and to connect them with faculty members who do work in that area and serve as research mentors. Methodological and statistical support is available through the department as well. Most residents do a standard research/scholarly project, but some complete their required project as part of one of the longitudinal programs described in the Special Tracks tab.
