Our Research Training Opportunities
Residents are required to complete six months of research time through the rotation and curriculum schedule. Each resident will have a dedicated research mentor to facilitate development of independent research ideas. The FIRST program at BIDMC has resources available to aid in project design, navigating the IRB, and database development.
- It is expected that residents learn autonomy in developing research projects and questions.
- Residents will be expected to submit their work at national and international meetings, and publish in the peer-reviewed literature. Stipends will be available for residents to attend these meetings.
