Every Community Memorial resident is required to participate in scholarly activity in order to meet graduation requirements. The scope of this activity is defined by the requirements of the specialty college and may include both research and quality improvement activities. Residents should review those requirements carefully prior to initiating a project to ensure it meets the specifications of their specialty board. For some specialties, quality improvement activities may meet the research requirement. For other specialties, it is a standalone requirement. The Graduate Medical Education Program has established a Research Support Team to help guide residents with their scholarly activity. The Director of Research, Dr. Robert Rubin, assists residents and faculty in designing and completing research projects and is available for consultation and guidance. After consulting with the Research Support Team, most research projects will need to be submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for approval.

Residents are encouraged to present their final work at a national meeting. The Graduate Medical Education Program will help residents attend a conference to present their work.
