The Resident Research Day is a forum at which PGY2-6 residents are required to present a paper based on their original research.
A visiting professor presents at Neurosurgery Grand Rounds, and each resident has an opportunity to present their research, inviting comments and suggestions from the visiting professor. The residents have lunch with the visiting professor, followed by a teaching session in the afternoon.
Dinner is organized in the evening where the ‘best paper’ prize is presented to the deserving resident by the visiting professor. This event occurs in the Fall.
