Pharmacy Publications | VA Tennessee Valley Health Care

Research and publication, at an initial glance, can be intimidating for an entering resident. At TVHS, we have implemented a research training program that will help walk a resident from inception of a research question, development of the research protocol, data collection, and analysis to poster presentation and publication in a year. The resident will be paired with a preceptor who is affluent in research, and they will complete the project together side-by-side. Our goal is to have our residents trained to perform research responsibilities in order to make them more competitive for any clinical job in which they may apply. It is important to us that preceptors and residents alike contribute to the medical literature and the profession. Listed below are recent publications achieved by our past residents and current preceptors.
