Although the ground up here is deep in snow, I have it on good authority that spring will arrive this year as always. And that means Resident Research Day! For those of you who haven’t ever attended or sent in work, here is your opportunity. We’ll once again be at the Conference Center at Waltham Woods, in Waltham, Massachusetts, this year on Tuesday, May 12. It’s a fabulous, intimate setting, and year after year, the research presented by the residents has been simply outstanding. Over the years, we’ve seen everything from tight, well analyzed single center series, to ground-breaking work on opioid prescribing, to cutting edge basic science to large database work with data sources such as NSQIP or the National Inpatient Sample. Original work is encouraged, but it is allowable to have residents submit work that has been presented previously, so there is no excuse to not have your best work on display here. There are cash awards for the residents in both basic sciences as well as clinical sciences, but although it is a competition the vibe is completely collaborative with a tasty lunch and a chance to mingle with residents from all over New England. Submitting and/or attending will also satisfy your Society participation obligations. So mark it on your calendar and we hope to see you there! The abstract submission deadline is March 31, 2020.
