The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists residency accreditation standards require all postgraduate residency training programs to teach and evaluate a resident's ability to advance practice through project development and presentation, underscoring the importance of conducting research in today's professional climate. Although many residents express strong interest in research participation and contributing to the medical literature, many obstacles to publication have been identified. We aim to illustrate a deliberate approach to teaching this material and structuring the longitudinal experience in a way that maximizes resources to overcome these barriers. Such efforts should aid residents, advisors, and program directors in establishing curriculum which leads to successful completion and publication of pharmacy resident's research projects.
