Division of Medical Residencies and Fellowships: Research and Scholarship

The School of Health and Medical Sciences places a strong emphasis on scholarly activity.  All residents and fellows are allowed access to the resources of Seton Hall's Walsh Library.  Trainees are provided formal instruction through a Research Methods course, which includes modules on the medical literature, research ethics, epidemiology, design of clinical studies, biostatistics and preparation of presentations and publications. Additionally, consultation is available on a year-round basis with individuals who can offer assistance with each of these key areas of research methodology.

Residents and fellows have the opportunity to work with faculty mentors in a variety of research settings and are encouraged to present and publish their work.  The School also holds the annual Dr. George Perez Research Colloquium in the Spring that includes the presentation of original research studies and interesting case reports.  This highly successful meeting affords postgraduate trainees the opportunity to discuss their work with their peers and faculty and to better prepare for presentation at regional or national meetings.  Seton Hall University's Teaching and Learning Technology Center (TLTC) also provides residents and fellows with support for graphics (posters and publication prints) to facilitate dissemination of their research findings.
