PGY-4/NS4: Research

Research: Residents are encouraged to pursue basic or clinical research at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (FIMR), within the hospital setting, or at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ Medical School campus.

All research proposals are submitted to the PD and the Education Committee for approval by the end of the PGY-2 year, so as to ensure that they are scientifically rigorous and that the resident can submit the project for external funding or research award. 

Residents will take a limited amount of call during their research experience to ensure that clinical skills are maintained.
