Research is a cornerstone of our department. In fact, the Department of Pediatrics is ranked #7 of 85 medical school pediatric departments nationwide for awards from the National Institutes of Health. As part of our residency training, all residents complete a scholarly project that will challenge them to answer a hypothesis-driven question generated by their interests.
