Residents are strongly encouraged to participate in research activities during their residency training. Residents can elect to take research time in two ways. First, a traditional 1-3 week block of time can be scheduled; residents on the research track can do up to 3 months of research in the context of residency. Additionally, a resident may choose to reserve a longitudinal research elective in addition to/in lieu of a block, which does not add to total elective time. These dedicated ½ day sessions are scheduled during the resident's +1 week and considered part of the resident's schedule personalization. Residents are able to request these 1/2 days starting in January of their intern year. 

Elective Rotations

Each resident may be granted up to 3 elective experiences during residency training. Each elective experience may be up to 3 weeks in duration. If a particular interest is not represented by the elective offerings, residents have the option to self-design and propose an elective block.
