Resident Research

Research is an important facet of our residency program. Research is conducted by every resident with the expectation of publishing their work. Residents are also encouraged to present their research at local, national, and international conferences.  Each resident will work with the Director of Orthopedic Research, Dr. Yoon, to start a new project or join an existing one. The Orthopedic Research Committee keeps track of all projects and provides guidance for resident research.

As part of the AOAO residency training standards, each resident is required during their PGY 3, 4, and 5 years to submit at least one scientific paper as the first author.  Projects can include a scientific article, a literature review, a case report or a poster presentation.  PGY5 residents are required to submit their paper prior to January 1st of their graduating year.
