Resident Research Projects

Faculty in the department have a wide range of research interests, spanning all the general and subspecialty areas of obstetrics and gynecology. We encourage each resident to be involved in a series of research projects throughout his or her training. The completion of at least one such project is a requirement for graduation from the residency program. At the end of each academic year, the graduating residents present their research at Residents' Research Day. Also presenting will be other residents who have completed a project and wish to participate.

Residents can benefit from the research project in three overall areas. Scientifically, the project gives an opportunity to learn the principles of study design and statistical analysis. In a practical sense, this experience can teach residents to develop realistic research objectives and to allocate time so as to guarantee the project’s progress and success. Finally, residents gain experience in public speaking, and learn to develop visual presentations.

The research project is coordinated by a faculty member who guides the resident, providing constructive criticism and feedback from the initial planning through the final presentation. We anticipate that each project will result in an abstract and/or manuscript that will be submitted for presentation at a national meeting, and/or for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Residents whose abstracts and papers are accepted for presentation at regional or national conferences will be eligible to have their conference attendance sponsored by the department.

Project Guidelines:

1. Each resident will select a faculty preceptor that he or she will work closely with to develop, carry out and present the research project.
2. The project may be comprised of clinical or basic research.
3. Each project will involve the following steps:

  • development of a research question
  • search and critical evaluation of the published literature relevant to the project
  • preparation of a protocol, including background information, materials and methods, and proposed statistical analysis
  • procurement of Institution Review Board approval, if necessary
    collection of data
  • analysis of data, using appropriate statistical tests
  • preparation of an oral presentation, with appropriate audiovisual backup
  • delivery of the presentation on residents’ day
