Although the rural general surgery residents are not required to do two years of dedicated research, they are required to present research at the Department of Surgery Resident Research Forum twice within their five years of training. Knowledge of methodologies and research protocols related to health services and public health is essential for community general surgeons to continuously assess their own practice outcomes and to assess alternative practice techniques, technologies and processes.
