Research and Conferences
The department has a distinguished scholastic tradition with many of the members currently involved in clinical and/or basic science research or having published in peer review journals. The program strives to enhance the educational experience of its residents by providing an active research environment and educating the residents in the proper methodology of research.
Residents are required to select a research topic by early second year and to present in the hospital-wide research day during PGY-3. A faculty member in the relevant area is selected to assist and guide the resident along this process. During this process, residents have access to the hospital's biostatistics department for assistance in such areas as study design, sample size, and interpretation of data. A majority of our studies have been published in peer review journals (Obstetrics & Gynecology, Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, Journal of Reproductive Medicine) and presented to the Nassau Ob/Gyn Society.
