Research and Scholarly Activity

Pediatric Scholarly Activity



Our residents participate in a variety of scholarly activities at RUSH including longitudinal research, quality improvement projects and case reports. Our program provides funding for residents to attend national, regional and local conferences to proudly present their work.

Residents collaborate with supportive faculty mentors to help them meet their research goals. Residents may choose to rotate on a designated research elective so they can dedicate time to working on larger projects. The department hosts the annual RUSH Pediatric Scholarly Activity Symposium (PSAS) which is a fun way for students, residents, and fellows to show off their scholarly achievements each year!
