Research at SJHMC

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.

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