Research Advisory Council

The Research Advisory Council provides residents and faculty with advice and assistance in the design, conduct, and analysis of both basic science and clinical research studies. Council members offer input in the methodology of proposed projects and present resources and potential collaborations available within the Department of Surgery. The council is comprised of surgical residents and faculty to offer comprehensive feedback on proposed research projects. The council also has guest faculty rotating to offer new insights and recommendations to the relevant research field.
