Research Forum & Open House

MD/PhD Student Research Forum & Open House

This annual event is scheduled for the first week of the September term.  The event includes faculty and student presentations and an informal research forum with poster presentations by the currently enrolled MD/PhD students. It is intended to showcase the research by our students, and to recruit new students and interested faculty into our Program. It is a very informal arrangement, mainly giving an opportunity for students and prospective applicants to ask questions about the clinician-scientist career path.  All are welcome!
