Scholarly Activity

Senior Research Academic Day – SRAD

Residents are required to complete a scholarly project during residency. Scholarly projects could involve bench research, clinical research, translational research, patient safety and quality, and educational projects. These projects are presented during the third year during dedicated conferences and/or as posters at the Senior Research Academic Day. Awards are given to the best oral and poster presentations.
