Recent Housestaff Research

There are numerous opportunities for the house staff to become involved in research, using elective time for research projects. Our faculty is always willing to have house officers spend elective time becoming involved in various research projects. House officers will receive support to attend national meetings if their material is selected for presentation.  A summary of recent house staff projects is listed below.
