All residents are expected to participate in research and scholarly activities. Residents do a 5-6 week dedicated research rotation as PGY2 and PGY3, but you’ll be involved in research activities throughout your time here. The research education program’s philosophy is that residents must be exposed to all stages of the research process in a manner that will be useful throughout their careers.
During the residency program, residents are expected to progress in their ability to evaluate current research and to conduct original research. To promote growth and development in scholarship, the University and the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation maintain an effective infrastructure for research and scholarly activities of orthopedic residents. Residents are encouraged to make use of all of the available resources, including:
  • Laboratory space and equipment
  • Computer and data analysis services
  • Statistical consultation services
  • Research/basic science conferences
  • Faculty expertise and supervision
  • Library services
  • Grant services
  • Publication services
  • Dedicated time
  • Funding
Our faculty members are involved in a wide range of research activities. They will help you choose research projects and mentor you throughout the research process. To read more about the research activities in our department, visit our faculty research page.
