Research

All residents are required to complete at least two research projects during their training period under guidance of a faculty mentor. Residents present their research projects at our annual Don G. Harrel Lectureship. Speakers outside of the OB/GYN faculty act as judges at this citywide conference and select the most exceptional project. Awards are given at Methodist Health System's annual graduation banquet.

Residents with research projects accepted to national/regional meetings are generally sponsored to attend those meetings. This provides residents with important networking opportunities, especially those interested in pursuing fellowship training or academics.
