Resident Research

Resident Research

Residents are encouraged to participate in a research endeavor of their choice. They are assigned a mentor and given the time for this pursuit. Many residents choose a block of time early in their second year to initiate their projects and then continue them throughout their senior years. The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is a unique, disease-oriented biomedical research institution dedicated to advancing science located on the North Shore campus. More than 100 physicians and scientists study disease at all levels - from molecular biology to patient-oriented research - and translate their scientific findings into practical use. The institute has provided training, monetary support and personnel to help residents with their research projects.  In addition, each pediatric division is involved in a number of research initiatives and they welcome resident participation.  These projects include those involving bench research, clinical research, performance improvement methodology and population health

The NSLIJ Health System sponsors an annual Resident Academic Day and the Department of Pediatrics sponsors a Resident Research Day and a Quality Symposium.  In addition, each year a number of residents present their work at national meetings. The program directors and faculty are committed to fostering a resident's academic pursuits.

Below is a list of Publications and Presentations from CCMC residents for the last academic year.
