RESEARCH

 

Residents have exciting opportunities to engage in both clinical and basic science research. Our diverse patient population affords a high volume of pathology for residents seeking opportunities in clinical research.  For residents who may wish to participate in basic science research, relationships with Fresno State University and UC Merced allow access to basic science laboratories and an animal vivarium. Residents are required to participate in at least one research project and required to produce at least one abstract or manuscript of publishable quality. Recent topics presented or published include:
