We are proud of our research efforts and collaborations in the community that have allowed us to impact and improve the lives of our patients and their families in our local and surrounding communities.

Our residents and faculty are actively involved in clinical research and QI projects. Through our research committee led by our Faculty Advisor, Dr. Anjlee Patel, we have a robust curriculum including a mini lecture series on Research Methodology, monthly journal club meetings led by our PGY – 2 residents, and monthly research committee meetings to monitor and guide individual resident progress in their research journey. Our curriculum spans across your training with suggested milestones to encourage successful completion of research projects and potential for publications by graduation.
