The UNC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology recently awarded its first-ever Resident Research and Educational Grant awards to resident physicians Drs. Emi Bretschneider, Emily Davidson and Carolyn Webster.

The purpose of the awards is to provide residents financial support for educational opportunities and research. These residents will use the funds to attend national meetings where they will present their research.

"These grants will allow some of our resident physicians the chance to attend national conferences and meetings where they can contribute their own research findings and data to the areas in which they are most interested and to meet others working in those areas as well," said Dr. Daniel Clarke-Pearson, chair of the department. "Congratulations to these three resident physicians on our first-ever Resident Research and Educational Grant awards!"

Dr. Davidson will be presenting a paper titled "Baseline Understanding of Urinary Incontinence (UI) and Prolapse (POP) in New FPMRS Patients: Is There an Age-Related Difference?" at the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists on November 15; Dr. Webster will present research on "Contraception Use in Women of Reproductive Age on Warfarin" at a conference to-be-determined; and Dr. Bretschneider attended the 2015 American Urogynecologic Society Meeting in Seattle, WA.

Dr. Clarke-Pearson said the fund was established by an anonymous donor to advance OB-GYN graduate medical education and supported by additional contributions from faculty and friends of the department.
