Research Forum & Open House

MD/PhD Student Research Forum & Open House

This annual event includes faculty and student presentations by the currently enrolled MD/PhD students. The event 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.  Prospective applicants are welcome to attend the full event or any session of the event. Come and join us. Registration is not required.
