Residents are required to perform one IRB approved research study or three case reports.  The protocol and the details of the investigation should be discussed with one attending.  These manuscripts must be completed and ready for submission by January 15 of the resident’s 3rd year. The resident will be responsible for possible corrections and re-submission even after they have graduated from the program.

Should a resident fail to complete the research requirement by January 15 of their graduating year, the program director reserves the right to withhold time of completion of the residency, which could possibly delay eligibility to sit for the certifying examination of the American Board of Dermatology.

Second and third year residents may request up to one week per year of protected research time to be considered on an individual basis by Dr. Callen and/or Dr. Courtney Schadt.
