Medical residents are often presented with the dilemma of submitting a project with or without an attending physician listed as an author.

From case reports to larger research undertakings, what are the pros/cons of submitting with/without a senior attending?

Will journals/conferences consider projects performed solely by residents and fellows?

What do you do when an attending insists that he/she be listed as the first author, despite having minimal involvement in the project?
