The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery created the Ortho Research Toolkit to guide investigators through the research process. This is based on the CTSI Research Toolkit, another valuable resource. 


Our research committee reviews faculty and resident protocol design and grant submission activities. Our patient-based research efforts are fostered and expanded, and research designs are evaluated and supported.
