A leading contributor of science and knowledge through discoveries.


Welcome to the Pediatric Resident Research Webpage.

Residency training is multidimensional and programs are designed to provide trainees with skills in various areas of medicine. Within the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Manitoba, all residents are expected to complete a scholarly project, which in most cases involves the completion of a research project. The purpose of the research component of the of residency training is to expose residents to the scientific methods, provide skills necessary to properly evaluate research papers and, for some, provide an opportunity to foster the skills necessary to become a clinician investigator.

The resident research committee is designed to facilitate the completion of your residency research program by providing guidance, education, support and continued feedback throughout your training. The committee is made up of epidemiologists, clinicians and residents committed to ensuring you receive the highest quality education and support through this process.

The current webpage is designed to be a central node for residents to provide information pertaining to research. We have created a list of available mentors and projects, timelines and a calendar with events that relate to your research program and a series of resources to help you complete your project.

Please use the contact information below to connect with the resident research committee coordinator if you have questions about this process.
