Resident Research Guidelines and Expectations
Residents much present their work at scientific meetings in the form of a poster or oral presentation. In the event that a resident's conference/travel costs exceed the travel awards policy as listed above, the residency program will consider supporting these costs on an ad hoc basis under the same guidelines. These requests for additional funds should be submitted to the Program Director and Research Committee.
Research Faculty List
Research electives are available to provide the residents with "protected" research time. Electives can either be arranged on a "horizontal" or "block" basis. Horizontal electives can be taken as a half day per week during non-service rotations and block electives on a one or two month basis in place of clinical elective time. All residents interested in pursuing a research elective must formally apply for these electives. Written requests must be submitted and approved by the Program Director as well as the research supervisor. Goals and objectives for the elective must be outlined in agreement with the research supervisor and the clinical rotation supervisor if considering a horizontal electives. It is the respnsibility of the research supervisor to ensure adequate support and education is provided during the elective, and that appropriate progress in the research has been made. As for any elective, a rotation evaluation form must be completed at the end of the elective.

Resident Research Database
Password: (please contact Research Committee)
This database contains current and past resident's scholarly activity, and is a great resource for resident's interests and achievements. Please forward your projects, presentations and publications to the resident representative of the Research Committee or the purposes of updating this database.
Critical Appraisal Course
The critical appraisal is organized by the research committee and is run throughout the year. The objectives of the course are to a) equip the residents with the ability to critically appraise scientific articles and b) preparation for critical appraisal questions that arise in their Royal College exams.
