Our residency programs fully support the use of research within our health-system to encourage various clinical and administrative initiatives. Residents are a key contributor and are expected to complete a major research project under the supervision of the Residency Program Director as well as research committees formed at individual sites. Research projects are reviewed by each location’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) for approval. These projects will be presented at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and the Florida Residency Conference.
