The University of South Alabama College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics hosted its 16th annual Residents Day on Oct. 24, 2017. At the event, senior residents in the pediatrics residency program presented their scholarly work to fellow residents, faculty and students.
Dr. Haidee Custodio, associate director of the pediatrics and residency program and assistant professor of pediatrics at the USA College of Medicine, says that Research Day serves to recognize and highlight the residents’ scholarly activity with their faculty mentors.
Residents choose a topic and faculty advisor and then work on their scholarly activity for the first two years of their training.
Dr. Custodio said that many of the residents subsequently present their research in oral or poster presentations at the Southern Regional Meeting.
“Our Research Day and participation at the Southern Regional Meeting is a testament to the dedication and support of the pediatrics department to our residents’ professional growth,” Dr. Custodio said.
The pediatrics department bestows the Charles Jay Hoff Award for excellence in scholarly activity to the resident and his/her faculty adviser with the best project, as chosen by evaluations from faculty members in the department. The recipient of this award is announced at the end of the academic year.
