At Queen’s, we strongly believe that being at the cutting edge of medicine requires a solid grounding in research fundamentals. Each resident participates in individual research projects from PGY-2 through PGY-4. Significant support, including idea generation, methodological and statistical consultation, and funding are provided. Residents are also provided with significant, dedicated time to carry out their research (generally 10% of their time) within the program.
A Clinician Investigator Program (CIP) is available at Queen’s, and could complement our Program well for those interested in more in-depth research training. Residents showcase their research at our annual departmental research symposium, and many also present at national and international conferences. Many Queen’s residents have been honoured with national awards for research excellence.
