Ninth Annual Resident Research Day Recognizes Scholarly Work of Crozer-Keystone Residents and Fellows

The Office of Medical Education at Crozer-Keystone Health System held its ninth annual Resident Research Day on May 28 in the James E. Clark Education Center at the Crozer-Chester Medical Center.

Susan Williams, M.D., chief medical officer, started the Resident Research Day in 2005. Now a yearly event, it showcases the scholarly work of CKHS residents and fellows with supervision by Crozer attending physicians. The project categories are case reports, quality improvement projects and primary research. This year, there were 30 percent more entries.

The process requires a collaborative effort including Guy Hewlett, M.D., director of Medical Education for Crozer-Keystone and program directors: Kelly Bradley-Dodds, M.D.; Dina Capalongo, D.O.; Steve Collina, M.D.; Christine Giesa, D.O.; David Hadley, M.D.; William Urbas, D.P.M.; Deborah-Longo Malloy, D.O.; Ashish Rana, M.D.; William Warning, M.D. and Caitlin White, M.D. The 2012 addition of Alexandra Hanlon, Ph.D. to provide biostatistics support has also greatly enhanced the quality of the projects.
