Resident Research

Residents have required research projects to complete during their five-year residency that encompass all of the basic types of research. 



Projects typically include

  • a case report or literature review
  • a quality improvement project
  • and a prospective clinical trial.


A dedicated two-month research rotation during the PGY-3 year helps to facilitate the implementation and completion of the research project requirements. 

The department provides full support for these projects including the assistance of our research staff on campus as well as coordination with other departments on the Oklahoma City or Norman campuses. 

All residents present their research projects annually at our Visiting Professorship Conference in June. Manuscripts may also be presented at other local and national meetings with department funding provided.
