At Memorial Hermann, our residents benefit from the unique experience of conducting clinical research. Assisted by our Research Coordinator, Lane Bailey PT, PhD, residents have the opportunity to take part in one of our several ongoing research studies. Residents may also choose to create their own clinical question related to one of our larger ongoing data sets: Clinical Outcomes Following Arthroscopic Knee Surgery (COFAKS), or Clinical Outcomes of the Spinal Patient from Conservative Care to Post-Operative Management. Below is a list of our ongoing research studies being led by our residents.
