All PGY-4 Urology residents are required to spend a six-month block doing research and have the option to work with the Health Services Research Division. While you are with the EGG team, a resident will be expected to:
- Write four hours a day during the week and keep a well-organized playbook regarding at least one primary research project
- Write and submit one manuscript as first author and 1-2 other manuscripts as co-author
- Take on a mentoring role with the medical students
Please reach out to Mia Alcorn for more information on our program and application process.
- Medical Students
Medical students interested in furthering their research with urology and health services research are always a welcome addition to the EGG Team. Less structured than our fellow and residency programs, your time and work with the team will be influenced both by the projects currently running and your own engagement. We have had students work on everything from data entry and literature reviews to first authoring manuscripts and presenting at conferences.
If you are interested in joining a project, please reach out to Mia Alcorn for an event invitation to our weekly EGG meeting on Friday mornings at 7:15am. While you are not required to join every week, this meeting is where new students are assigned to projects so keep it on your schedule if you are interested in joining our research. Once you have successfully joined a project, the Fellow or Resident running the project will be your key contact for what further work you will need to do for it.
