BBH residents excel academically and demonstrate this during research week each spring. PGY-1 and PGY-2 residents prepare a written case report as well as a poster presentation of their case. PGY-3 residents present either original clinical research or a quality improvement or patient safety project. The winner, who receives a substantial cash prize, is announced at the celebration that culminates at the end of the week. The winner of the research competition goes on to present his/her poster at the state and even the national ACP meetings. During the PGY-2 year, each resident dedicates an entire month to a quality improvement or patient safety project. The residents work in conjunction with the faculty as well as quality improvement officers from both hospitals to design a project to improve the care delivered to our patients. At the end of the month, the resident presents his/her project to all fellow residents as well as the faculty and staff. Additionally, the resident submits the project in abstract form to the program director who aids in submitting it for publication. Many faculty members in all subspecialty areas conduct original clinical research and welcome residents to assist in and co-author their work. These publications help residents secure fellowship positions in their chosen field.
