As an institution, we have great interest in not only individual patient care but also furthering the science of medicine on a global level.
We strongly support research efforts amongst our residents and faculty. Every year, BMC hosts a Resident Research Forum in which all residents can present their work to the hospital faculty as a whole. This forum includes research work from all residency programs at our medical center, with awards granted to the top performers.
In the academic year 2019-2020 , seven residents and two faculty members published A Novel Approach to Reduce Transmission of COVID-19 During Tracheostomy in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons. This was also accepted and presented as a virtual poster at the October 2020 Annual Clinical Assembly.
In addition, our surgical residents are strongly encouraged to present research at local, regional, and national meetings, such as:
This current academic year, two of our residents' scholarly work was accepted and presented at the New England Surgical Society at their annual meeting in September 2015.
We hold a monthly surgical research forum for residents and faculty in order to encourage greater and ongoing participation in research and scholarly activity.
