Scholarship in Residency
Scholarly activity is an integral part of clinical training for OHSU residents. It is an essential component of creating a love of life-long learning and clinical curiosity in all areas of medicine. Scholarship can also easily be a fun and fulfilling niche within a clinical practice. Scholarship may take many forms, including clinical/translational research, journal review articles or book chapter publications, case reports and clinical images, quality improvement projects, and presentation of abstract or oral presentations at local, regional, or national conferences and society meetings.
