All residents are required to complete a research project as a requirement for graduation. It is expected that the project will be presented at the department's annual Resident Research Day and be written as a manuscript suitable for possible publication. There is a well-designed program within the residency to assist in and supervise resident research, generally commencing at the beginning of the PGY-2 academic year.
Beaumont's Research Institute also has multiple facilities and resources, including financial, to assist residents with their projects. Over the years, many residents have also presented their research, frequently winning scientific awards, at the Beaumont Resident and Fellow Research Forum, the SEMCME Research Forum, the Michigan Section-ACOG Junior Fellow Research Day, the APGO/CREOG Annual Meeting, the ACOG Annual Clinical Meeting and the Central Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Multiple residents have also had their projects published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
