Our residents are introduced to clinical leadership and research skills through clinical quality improvement project participation as a PGY1 and PGY2. As a PGY3, residents receive further directed education in these skills, which culminates in leading an inter-professional team in a year-long quality improvement project. The results from each project are finalized in poster format, and residents present these outcomes regionally, with many having their work accepted for national presentation as well. Residents also have the opportunity to pursue additional scholarship projects in areas of their particular interest and passion.
