SPRING SENIOR RESIDENT RESEARCH DAY
RESEARCH PROCESS FLOW
The figure below illustrates the general research framework used by the Department of Emergency Medicine for clinical resident projects. The structure has evolved to provide resident researchers with efficient and competitive support leading to successful completion of a research project.
Briefly, the resident formulates an initial research plan with the help and guidance of their collaborator and the biostatistician, and any co-investigators. This research plan must then be approved by the Research Committee, or an individual appointed by the Research Director. The resident is responsible for completing all necessary paperwork and an IRB protocol. The resident maintains responsibility for appropriate conduct of the research, including monitoring of enrollment and data. Once the project is complete, the resident works with the biostatistician and collaborator to analyze the data. When results are available, these are written up with the support of the collaborator, co-investigators and biostatistician.
Project and faculty collaborator is identified and declared by June 30 of the PGY-1 year. All seniors will present at Senior Resident Research Day, typically the week prior to SAEM (May).
