Women’s and Infant’s Health Research in Progess Rounds (WIHRIP)
Women’s and Infant’s Health Research in Progess Rounds (WIHRIP) are an opportunity for residents to present research projects to obtain constructive feedback while the research is in the developmental stages from their peers and from researchers. We meet monthly over a pizza lunch.
Clinician Investigator Program
On completion of their residency training, the department encourages residents to consider obtaining additional research training and, potentially, an academic position as a clinician-investigator. The department, and its members, will facilitate this in the following ways:
- Career advice will be provided to residents by the program director at the 6 monthly evaluations of progress.
- Residents will have opportunities to have discussions with established clinician-investigators from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and from other departments.
- The department will help to arrange opportunities for interested residents to meet with potential research supervisors and representatives of McMaster’s Graduate Studies programs.
Residents will be familiarized with, and encouraged to contact representatives of, the McMaster Clinician Investigator Program.
- The department will work with residents and prospective research supervisors to secure salary support for research fellowship years.
- The department will consider making a direct contribution to the funding of research fellowship positions on a case-by-case basis. For research fellows who are enrolled in McMaster’s Clinician Investigator Program, there is a provisional arrangement that the department will match funds (1:1) committed by the primary research supervisor or the graduate studies program in which the trainee research fellow will be enrolled.
