Medical student research day invites all medical students at the George Washington University to showcase their work through submission of abstracts and selected oral presentations. Awards will be presented for outstanding abstracts.
Medical student research day is distinct from the university-wide research day and is designed to highlight the breadth of research and scholarly activity that medical students have accomplished during their education at GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences. All medical students are invited to present research regardless of the area of focus. We anticipate that abstract submissions will represent a broad range of research interests and disciplines, including basic and translational science, clinical research, health policy and public health research, and education-related research.
Medical student research day will be held on Thursday, April 28th from noon – 5:30 pm. Pending additional guidance from the university related to COVID precautions, research day is currently planned as a live, in-person event with poster sessions at the University Student Center, as well as live presentations from a distinguished plenary speaker, and selected student oral presentations of their work. Abstracts submissions are due by March 14th, 2022.. All medical students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend this showcase!
