Research:

Residents are required to produce one scholarly product of publishable quality during residency. Dr. Jay Goldberg is our director of research, and under his guidance, our residents have produced a multitude of research papers, and have presented at many conferences and meetings locally and nationally. Our residents have also been asked to present their areas of interest at other residency programs throughout the area.
