Develop Study Design
Peer review of research ideas takes place at subspecialty group meetings. Sports, shoulder, hand, spine, and trauma groups all meet regularly to discuss research ideas and ongoing projects in their respective areas. These meetings are attended by faculty, residents, and research staff. Dates, times, and locations of SSG meetings can be found on the SSG website.
Please note that projects conducted at TRIA require SSG review before moving forward with protocol development and IRB submission.
