The ACGME's common program requirements state that residents must take part in scholarly activities. Therefore, it is important for program administrators to keep track of any scholarly activities residents participate in. Here is a list of scholarly activities that should be documented:

  • Publishing case reports
  • Attending education sessions, lectures, and workshops
  • Conducting teaching activities  
  • Participating in quality improvement and other research projects
  • Submitting posters for exhibit at conferences 
  • Presenting at conferences

Do not forget to check in with your specialty's professional society. Many sponsor research programs, scholarly competitions, and help cover travel costs to professional meetings.

More information about resident scholarly activities can be found in HCPro, Inc.'s The Residency Coordinator's Handbook by Dianna Otterstad, BA, available here.
