- As a university program, the Residency Program has tremendous external support for research. Currently, the Departments of Pediatrics at the three integrated hospitals receive funding for more than 50 research projects, totaling in excess of $9 million annually. Last year alone, more than 215 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters were published by the combined pediatric faculty.
- As a resident, you’ll be encouraged to pursue clinical research activities under faculty supervision. Financial support specifically for resident research projects is available from Nemours. In recent years, several of our residents have made presentations at national scientific meetings and have had papers accepted for publication.
- Even if you aren’t involved in research, you’ll be expected to be able to critically evaluate published medical literature. Journal clubs and computer programs teach research study design issues, evidence-based medicine, and the basics of biostatistics.
