Residents have the option to spend a full academic year in their fourth year of residency as a research resident. Permission to do a research year is highly competitive and requires that the resident publish and attend several research conferences throughout the year. Research residents must participate in the OHSU Research Fair and be open to exploring a variety of research within our divisions.
Residents that are interested in research must choose a mentor from the Department of Surgery faculty and then develop a research proposal to be submitted in December of their third year of residency. Once approved by the Research Committee, the residents will then complete one year of research under the direction of SuEllen Pommier, Ph.D. A second year of research is occasionally possible, as is research with off-site mentors.
