Together EVMS and CHKD provide an excellent environment for research and discovery, spanning: 

  • Basic science studies 
  • Translational projects
  • Clinical research
  • Global health projects
  • Community health projects

Our program fosters research through elective months and sponsorship for presentations at local, regional and national conferences. Residents publish findings in the form of book chapters and manuscripts in prominent journals. 

QI Projects

All Pediatric residents at CHKD complete a quality improvement (QI) project over the course of three years. Our program is on the cutting-edge of QI through active partnerships with Toyota as well as recruitment and consultation with industry leaders. 

Residents develop and initiate QI projects, both individually and in groups while guided by faculty mentors. We strive to acquaint residents with industry-recognized QI methods and tools (Six Sigma, LEAN, etc.).
