Resident Research Reference

Ilyas S. Aleem, MD, Assistant Program Director of Research

Conducting research will develop your critical thinking skills, which is invaluable for not only contributing to the literature but also in reading the literature. During your research experience you will learn how to ask a relevant question, develop a hypothesis, set up a research plan to test the hypothesis, collect credible data, analyze that data, and draw a meaningful conclusion. Finally, you will learn how to communicate your research with the Orthopaedic community through oral and written venues. Developing these basic, fundamental skills during your residency will facilitate a life-long critical evaluation of the literature for your clinical practice and may foster further interest in research which might impact the field at large.

We set high standards for the quality of research that we do, and we follow ethical practices when completing our projects.

This research requirement is in keeping with the ACGME Program Requirements, which require residents to demonstrate scholarly activity through research or structured literature review.
