Residents' Research Accomplishments

Pediatric Resident Research Committee

The Pediatric Residency Program at Children’s Mercy is committed to providing research opportunities and mentorship support for research to pediatric residents. The Resident Research Committee functions as an oversight committee for resident research with the goal to match interested residents with research mentors. 

Additionally, the committee provides education for residents interested in research and works with the Children’s Mercy Research Institute to collaborate on resources to maximize research success.
