Department of Gynecology & Obstetrics to Hold 48th Annual Resident Research Day

April 3, 2014

The 48th Annual Clinical Topics in Gynecology and Obstetrics, featuring presentations from residents and fellows, will be held on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, and Wednesday, May 14, 2014. Resident Research Day is a venue where the Department’s trainees and their mentors can share interests and accomplishments in translational research, clinical investigation, scholarship, and discovery. 

The Department has a long history of integrating resident and fellow research into the education experience. Over the years, the research program and expectations have been refined and enhanced. Today, residents may choose to conduct research in basic, clinical, and/or quality domains with the ultimate goal of translating findings into improved patient care and generating a passion for lifelong learning that graduates carry with them throughout their professional careers.

On April 23, graduating residents and fellows will present their research from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. On May 14, second-year residents will present their project proposals for review and feedback. Both events will be held in Glenn Auditorium Learning Center at Emory University Hospital Midtown. It is not necessary to RSVP.
