Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing departmental research. Current projects include but are not limited to:
• Developing, instituting, and collecting data for Enhanced Recovery after Surgery protocols
• Investigation of low-flow anesthesia and impact on hospital costs and the environment
• Pain management after supracondylar fracture

In addition, fellows participate in the Improvement Academy. It is a participative learning experience designed to allow participants to practice an A3 mindset for problem solving. It is a framework that will be used throughout fellows’ careers to continuously improve the quality of patient care and productivity of work environment and clinical teams.
