Resident Academic Development Time (ADT)
Residents at the Department of Surgery receive dedicated time during their training to pursue academic interests without clinical responsibilities. This time is structured into majors and minors through our research centers and cores, which provide resources. All residents are funded during this time, and we partner with our T32 grants and the National Clinician Scholars Program for this funding.
Following academic development time, residents have the opportunity to apply to the CBATS Surgeon Scientist Accelerator Program for lab technician support to assist in continuing their research projects.
