Our residency places a strong emphasis on excellence in research and equipping our residents with the necessary training to effectively critique the published literature and conduct their own practice-based research following residency completion. Residents will have a dedicated research month in December and participate in a longitudinal Research Development Series through their residency:

Example Research Development Series topics:

  • Introduction to biostatistics and study design 
  • Developing a compelling research question
  • The “nuts and bolts” of research: IRB submission and data capture
  • Designing an eye-catching professional poster
  • Crafting a compelling manuscript
  • Demystifying the peer-review process

Resident research presentation opportunities:

  • Resident Research Update meetings (quarterly to SJHMC preceptors)
  • Poster presentation at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting
  • Platform presentation at the Southwestern States Residency Conference
  • Opportunities for presentation during Dignity Health/CommonSpirit system calls
  • Opportunities for presentation to local SJHMC committees/specialist groups dependent on project topic
  • Opportunities for abstract submission to other national clinical meeting dependent on project topic

Abstracts and Publications

Over the years our residents and preceptors have authored numerous published abstracts, case reports, and research projects:
