Every year, R1 residents and fellows in the Department of Pediatrics participate in the Pediatrics Research Curriculum Course in the fall. The course provides a foundation for understanding research methodology, developing research projects and learning about ongoing research in the Department of Pediatrics (Divisions and Residents).
The sessions provide a direct contact with many Divisions in the Department of Pediatrics, allow R1 residents to know who to contact for research and other scholarly activities, and to meet potential mentors.
By the end of Block 12, R1 residents need to find a mentor, determine their research project during residency, and sign a Mentorship Agreement form with their mentor.
