2018 Research Updates »


All faculty and residents are part of the Research Committee. On the first Wednesday of every month, ongoing projects are reviewed and new research is discussed. All PGY 2's & 3's must contact Dr. Zehtabchi at least one month prior to the start of your Research Rotation to setup a project. If you fail to do this your research time will be converted into clinical shifts. Everyone is encouraged to participate in at least one study (regardless of your PGY level) throughout the academic year.
