Research is required of each resident. Before completing the program, each resident is required to bring at least one research project to completion and to prepare a paper which is judged to be worthy of publication. As can be seen from the list of presentations and publications, many of these projects are brought to publication. Many more do not lead to publication but do contribute to the resident's understanding of and appreciation for the research method. There is a specific research/rehab rotation during the second year.
Clinical studies form an active part of the research endeavors of the Wright State University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and include several industry-unded projects as well as unfunded clinical studies performed at Miami Valley Hospital. See Publications and Presentations for detailed research information.
Numerous articles, projects and case reports continue to progress. See Publications and Presentations for detailed research information.
