All residents must maintain current CITI certification and complete HIPAA for Researchers to participate in research. The SJMC residency program requires residents to complete all 12 research modules of Collaborative Approach to Research Education (CARE) Training. The timeline for completion is at the discretion of the Program Director in conjunction with and under mentorship of the Research Director.
Completion of a scholarly project is a graduation requirement mandated by the RRC for EM.
The overall suggested timeline for completion of the scholarly project:
Projects are set by the resident and agreed upon by the Research Mentor and approved by the Program Director. Resident must keep in mind this scholarly project is a three-year process. Residents will add tailored events to the suggested timeline listed above. Residents are encouraged to complete tasks early and provide a buffer for unexpected events.
The scholarly project is completed independent of shift responsibilities. When scheduling events related to scholarly projects, residents must adhere to the ACGME duty hour requirements. Residents are encouraged to seek assistance from their Research Mentor, the Program Director, or other faculty members and mentors as needed.

Ownership of Intellectual Property
Data, programs and devices generated by research projects within SJMC residency programs and any analyses conducted on such data remains the property of St Joseph’s Medical Center/Dignity Health unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. The Principle Investigator (PI) is the steward of that data and takes responsibility for the collection, recording, storage, dissemination, retention, and disposal of data. No intellectual property should be submitted for presentation or publication without the expressed permission of the Institutional Research Director and/or the Publications and Research Oversight Committee.
The PI of a research project is the research project team leader and is responsible for the research project direction. The PI is the researcher who manages the project, prepares the IRB proposal, and is responsible for the ethical conduct of the project and co-investigators. Residents who take on the responsibility of a PI must identify a faculty advisor. If there are three or more co-investigators, then an authorship agreement needs to be submitted to the Research Director, prior to the internal review of the manuscript, detailing the responsibilities of each co-investigator and the PI.
The Research Director grants major project credit to the resident(s) based on work total contributed to the project. Only upon successful completion of the internal review process and approval by the Research Director may the resident PI submit the manuscript for publication. However, if six months after the resident is granted major project credit, a manuscript is not submitted for publication, the SJMC Residency assumes responsibility for the resident’s portion of work on the study. The residency may consult with the other study investigators toward assigning additional investigators or changing authorship order as necessary to complete the manuscript submission process.
