This program introduces the resident to basic research and its clinical application. Research studies are encouraged and research is done in cooperation with the program director and approved by institutional authorities. Research projects can be retrospective or prospective in nature.

The resident submits a proposal to the Beaumont-Farmington Hills Resident Research Committee.  The resident and faculty advisor present the proposal before Committee members, get approval and submit to the Beaumont IRB. The resident may utilize his completed project to meet AOCR requirements for scientific papers or exhibits, as well as in meeting ACGME scholarly activity requirements. 

The program director assures that the resident completes ACGME and/or AOCR required examinations.
