Residents are required to make a grand rounds presentation during their 4th and 5th years of residency. All residents are expected to complete an additional project during their 2nd –3rd years of residency with direct mentorship by a faculty member. Faculty members in all of the divisions have active research projects. The program has an annual lectureship (J.D. Ashmore Lectureship) and residents are encouraged to present a research paper at this meeting during their residency. Residents are encouraged to participate in numerous faculty projects and present their research at regional and national scientific meetings.
Residents recently have presented their papers at:
- South Carolina Vascular Surgical Society
- Southeastern Surgical Congress
- Association of Program Directors in Surgery
- American Association for the Surgery of Trauma
- Southern Association for Vascular Surgery
- Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery
In the past five years department residents and faculty have made over 170 presentations at regional and national meetings, and 150 at local meetings. They have published more than 90 articles in peer reviewed journals such as The American Surgeon, The Journal of Vascular Surgery, American Journal of Surgery, and the Journal of the American College of Surgeons.
