Background: Education, clinical care, and research are the three main foundations of academic health centers in the world. The research environment has always been riddled with ebbs and flows, depending on the availability of funding resources. Prospective research studies are limited for the residents in Saudi Arabia because most of them are doing rotations outside the center or changing the surgical unit after 1–3 months and joining another team. Objectives: This article discusses the creation of research units to provide research support in prospective studies and presents the advantages and disadvantages of these units. The project is based on the acknowledged importance of establishing research facilities in general surgery training centers of the kingdom with the aim of helping regions move in the same pace with the rest of the world. Conclusion: This project proposes establishing research units and development of prospective research studies in all general surgical centers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The goal of the project is to provide data and research materials to general surgery residents so that they can improve their performance and also increase their satisfaction in the field.
