Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery, Trenton

Research

Our program places a high emphasis on research, quality improvement, and scholarship. We support and encourage fellows’ development in this area. Fellows are responsible to produce at least one scholarly paper or quality improvement project during the three years of fellowship. This is completed under the direct supervision and guidance of a faculty mentor. All research activities are conducted in an ethical manner with Beaumont IRB approval. Fellows and faculty mentors regularly meet to determine the status of the projects. Fellows are expected to submit the results and conclusions of the study to a peer-reviewed journal for publication or to an FPMRS-related conference (e.g. AUGS, SUFU, IUGA, etc.) for either oral or poster presentation. 

We have a diverse population of patients with pelvic floor disorders representative of the general population. There are a number of special cases (e.g. fistulae, obstetric lacerations, urethral diverticula, etc.) the fellows shall be exposed to. This large population affords ample opportunities for clinical research activities of all types (observational studies, retrospective and prospective studies, randomized controlled trials, and systematic reviews/meta-analyses). If fellows have an interest in laboratory research, Beaumont has facilities, resources, and mentors available for this type of research, and the fellows shall be supported in these endeavors. The Beaumont Research Institute has a biostatistics department, and a specific biostatistician is assigned to the program to assist the fellows with project design, implementation, and analysis of data. 

We believe that research and research training is a fundamental part of fellowship training and should be a part of a physician’s daily professional life.
