Conducting research is an important component of residency training in Dalhousie University. By the end of training, residents are expected to have two, first-author publications. To help keep residents on trakc, we have a variety of support in place such as financial support to conduct research projects and to attend conferences; regular project updates to ensure research is progressing; and dedicated personnel to assist in ethics submissions, manuscript preparation and review, and project design consultation. There is protected research time during the summer and during the academic urology rotation during PGY2, so it is important for PGY1s to establish a research project early on so they can focus on the projection during this rotation.
As a resident, you will present at the Department of Urology Research Day. This is an excellent opportunity to present in a professional setting, to network with faculty, and to receive constructive feedback on your research. Many residetns will also present at conferences such as the annual Canadian Urological Association conference.
Departmental Research Booklet
Part of our commitment to support research excellence is to ensure that all residents have access to projects. To achieve this, we have developed a centralized repository of available research projects, allowing residents to choose projects that are most inline with their professional goals.

Resident Research Updates
To ensure that residents will complete the research requirements of the program, regular updates are required. The password protected document listed below provides access to a shared file, in which projects, presentations, and publications can be updated. Updates are due by the end of December and June of each year.
