Throughout five years, residents are given ample time to investigate and become involved in all aspects of clinical research, including:
- Basic science and translational labs (Immunology and Microbiology).
- Quality improvement initiatives.
- Health services and patient-centered outcomes.
- Public health.
- Clinical trials — medical and surgical.
These projects lead to many publications, abstracts, podium and poster presentations at local, regional, national and even international meetings. Faculty mentors and research advisors are available to help residents design, implement and complete research initiatives. Nurse research clinicians are available to help with projects from initiation to completion, as well as departmental statisticians to assist in project completion.
More than 90% of all publications from the Division of Urology have a resident as author and more than 75% as the first author.
