Residents & Scholarly Activity

Residents & Scholarly Activity

Residents & Scholarly Activity (Scholars) is a full-day workshop designed to be a research basics refresher for residents as they prepare for their ACGME required scholarly activity. It provides an overview of the research process across medical specialties and introduces University of Louisville resources.

It is offered twice in the spring and twice in the fall so programs may decide when it is most useful for their residents to attend. Fellows are welcome on a "space available" basis.

By the end of this workshop, residents will have:

    • Explored at least two potential ideas for scholarly projects.
    • Refined at least one idea in terms of hypothesis and study design.
    • Participated in activities and discussions about the basic components of research design and implementation.
