Research Scholarships

The Department of Surgery has research funding available to exhort residents to start a research project. This could initially be partially funded by the department and, eventually, by grant funding agencies. Applications will be evaluated by a scientific committee consisting of eight members.

It is a great opportunity to start a research activity that will result in scientific stimulation and improvement of the Department’s academic performance while satisfying the accrediting agencies’ requirements.
