Residency and Research

One important and unique aspect of Weill Cornell Medicine’s pediatric residency program is its resident research requirement. At Weill Cornell Medicine, we are committed to providing residents with a basic foundation in research methodology and to ensuring that they have the administrative and faculty support to develop and carry out a research project successfully.

Throughout the year, residents receive a series of educational lectures focusing on a variety of topics including how to formulate a research question, choosing the appropriate methodology for a research study, and critically appraising scientific literature. At the end of their first year, every resident chooses a research project and identifies a faculty mentor with whom they will work throughout the course of the next two years. A resident research committee composed of faculty members from various disciplines provides additional oversight and mentoring.

At the completion of residency, each resident has the opportunity to present their research project to the entire department during professors' rounds. The department also awards travel scholarships for residents selected to present their research at regional or national conferences.
