Our residents are encouraged to pursue research and scholarly endeavors. All of our residents actively participate in the submission of articles/ case reports and offer presentations at mid-day conferences. Our Program Director and teaching faculty are also involved in all of the research activities and provide feedback to the residents. The Program Director meets with the Transitional Year residents semi-annually to review performance, conference attendance, performed procedures, as well as personal and professional issues, and provides advice and direction for future development.

The Transitional Year program at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center expects residents to submit as a minimum one case report and one quality improvement project by the end of their one year training. The program supplies its residents with the resources to be successful in this area by providing a GME Research Department that consists of a Research Director, Coordinator, and Fellows. The goal of our GME Research Department is to advance quality of care and patient related outcomes by providing residents and faculty with the resources, knowledge and infrastructure to plan and conduct innovative research.
