Research and Publications

 

At UCSF, we pride ourselves on giving our residents the education and tools they need to develop into world-class academicians. Through the development of close mentor relationships as well as a structured research curriculum, we aim to encourage a life-long passion for critical thinking and investigation.

Our research curriculum starts during intern year, where residents are encouraged to identify a mentor and start a research project during an identified elective month. Following this, we have a structured research didactic curriculum covering clinical research and statistical methods. Each summer, we hold a full-day research workshop covering topics such as how to integrate basic science research into residency, designing a retrospective study and big data research.

Second- and third-year residents are asked to undertake mentored research projects that are presented at the capstone of the research curriculum, the Alexander Irvine Resident’s Day. Our residents develop grant-style proposals for their research project, review them with our Resident Research Committee, and then undertake them over that academic year. Second year residents have 5 weeks of dedicated research time to assist with the completion of their projects. Both second and third year residents have built-in time during their rotations for research.

Many of our residents have worked internationally for their research projects, either by partnering with the Francis I Proctor Foundation, the premier institution for international ophthalmology research, or by identifying a project and mentor in another location.

Our resident research program has been extremely fruitful, yielding numerous resident publications (see below) and Heed Fellowships for our graduation residents

“UCSF offers an exceptional standard of clinical training with unique opportunities and strong mentorship for residents interested in pursuing basic science or clinical research.”
