Resident Research Activities
Here are some recent comments from the On-site survey (2002) of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada as it relates to the research activities of our Department.
Graeme N. Smith, M.D., Ph.D.
Resident Research Coordinator
- "The thought of a Resident not having a research project seems foreign to not only the Attending Staff but to the Residents as well!"
- "The Department is very productive with research. The residents are given an introductory course in research and all residents are expected to participate in one or more research projects throughout their residency. In fact this is so ingrained into the culture of this program that the residents tell us they would not think of questioning the importance of research endeavours for them on an individual basis. The total external research funding for the Department exceeded half a million dollars in the past year and the staff produced 29 publications in peer-reviewed journals in 2001 alone. The residents were authors of at least 35 papers in the last five years."
- "The Program offers strong mentorship in research. With a relatively small Faculty, this Department has been exceptionally productive on the research scene in Canada. The environment and culture is such that residents all want to participate in research projects. With expertise in lab and clinical research and clinical epidemiology support, the Department offers a wide breadth of opportunity for resident involvement. Recent developments of a video program linked to computer-generated simultaneous PowerPoint presentation will bring this Department to the forefront of medical education"
- "Having spent some time reviewing this Program, I understand why Queen's has such an excellent reputation throughout the Country as an excellent place to pursue training in our profession."
