All of our categorical residents complete a clinical research project before graduating. Every spring, the program sponsors the Annual Resident Research Symposium where residents present their research projects to the faculty. The faculty judges evaluate projects and awards are given at graduation. Our program is well-represented in the Western Regional American College of Physicians (ACP) Resident Poster presentations. Our residents typically present four to five different posters.
