Chest Banner - Scholarship Resources

Scholarly work can be a challenging yet very rewarding and fulfilling process.  Preparing a succinct abstract and a subsequent poster can be as challenging and valuable professional experience as participating in bench research. Trainees all benefit from the direction provided by academic mentors. Successful mentorship relationships foster productive academic careers, including greater career satisfaction, more informed career path decisions, networking, and stress management. 

As you will see on this page and throughout the Scholarship Website, opportunities for residents abound—ranging from abstract competitions to journal submissions to grant funded longitudinal research projects. We strongly encourage residents to seek out scholarship mentors, even for the seemingly "small" opportunities--your linked APD, fellows, and faculty are all potential scholarship resources.

Residency Program Funding Support & Leave Policies

In the interest of promoting and fostering resident scholarship, the Chair of Medicine, Dr. Terri Hough, encourages residents to apply for funding for both conference travel/attendance and to support research projects.

Residents are granted a limited number of educational leave days during their three years of training and depending on rotation at the time of conference travel, residents may be expected to find their own coverage (see policy below). During training, residents may also apply for scholarly support of up to $1,500 for presentation or publication of work and up to $2,000 for research project expenses.
