To the Editor: The Resident Physician Forum by Dr
Neale and colleagues1 addressed the important topic of
research during residency and provided a valuable and concise guide for
young physicians. A common problem among residents is the need to
identify a faculty mentor who would be willing to educate them in how
to present a scientific report. Residents usually have limited
experience in research and during their residency probably will
complete fewer projects than a research assistant. Also, the mentor has
to arrange his or her schedule around the resident's schedule.
