Research

In this highly competitive environment we live in, where new techniques, technologies, and scientific projects are constantly being developed, we strongly believe at AdventHealth Orlando that general surgery trainees should have the opportunity to acquire skills in experimental study design and execution. Whether this involves basic research, leading clinical trials, or outcomes projects, we have the tools and experience to provide the foundation for robust scientific inquiry and scholarly activity. With our ultimate goal being the training of the next generation of leaders in surgery, we provide our general surgery residents with the resources necessary to:

  • Critically evaluate the scientific literature
  • Design and execute experimental studies under the supervision of a mentor
  • Present at local, regional, national, or international scientific meetings
  • Write research manuscripts for publication

In order to achieve these goals, we meet on a regular basis to discuss new projects and ideas and to assess the status of the ongoing research.
