Scholarly activity is a requirement for all residents. Presentation of a submission-ready manuscript is required to obtain a certificate of completion, and may be clinical, health services, translational or basic laboratory research. All are encouraged to submit the result of their research for presentation at scientific conferences as well as for peer-reviewed publication.
