At Aventura Hospital and Medical Center, we are dedicated to high quality clinical research and scholarly activity. We offer a dynamic environment of scientific inquiry, and provide the tools and training necessary to successfully engage in meaningful scholarly pursuits.

Our residents are encouraged to take an active role in research to optimize their residency experience. We have a research team with 2-3 research fellows that help our residents conduct original research and quality improvement projects. Our residents have gone to multiple conferences to present abstracts and posters and have been awarded accordingly.
