Educational Purpose
Our residency introduces residents to the methods of evidence-based, hypothesis-driven research. This curriculum supplements the residents’ clinical experiences by teaching approaches for conducting a clinical research study as well as interpreting the published literature.

Structure of the program
The research curriculum is structured to help ensure that residents have a variety of resources available to support research efforts and that residents graduate from our program with at least:
  • Experience presenting research methods and findings at a professional meeting
  • Peer-reviewed publication authored by the resident.
Residents work on their respective research projects throughout the four-year tenure. Residents will also be expected to submit research projects in abstract format to state and/or national professional research conference(s).

Projects should also be submitted as a poster or an oral presentation to the Danbury Hospital’s Annual Joseph Belsky, MD, Research Day. May 2016 marked the 31st anniversary of Danbury Hospital’s annual Joseph L. Belsky Research Day, fondly named for our own Dr. Joseph Belsky who continues to be a pioneer in medical education and research at Danbury Hospital. Initiatives such as The Belsky Research Day help our clinical staff refine their skills in clinical investigation and research and allow Danbury Hospital to provide the best, evidence based care to its patients.

Danbury Hospital OB/GYN Residency Program hosted the 1st Annual State of CT Resident Research Day in 2012.
