The research experience allows the fellow to work with a supervising research mentor who will help her/him to design and implement a new research project that is carried out throughout the duration of the fellowship. This research project may involve basic or clinical research, depending on the interests or career goals of the fellow. In addition to specific research activities, the fellow will also attend the research design course and national scientific meetings to deliver poster or oral presentations.
Fellows are expected to write up and publish interesting cases that they encounter during their training. We strongly encourage fellows to present at least one poster per year at a national meeting.
