Remarkable Research: A Successful Resident Poster Day
The annual event features a grand collection of clinical, research, and quality improvement presentations from residents of both URMC and Rochester Regional Health Internal Medicine and Medicine-Pediatric programs. Many of these projects have been accepted at regional and national meetings, including the American College of Physicians, the American College of Gastroenterology, and ID Week. "Resident Poster Day is a vibrant showcase of our residents' dedication to expanding their medical knowledge, moving science forward, and improving the quality of care that they deliver," said Amy Blatt, MD, program director of the IM Residency. Special thanks to John Grable, MD, PhD, director of the IM Research Track, Chris Webb, program coordinator, and all of the poster judges for helping to make this a successful event each year. Take a peek at the Poster Winners and view some of the photo highlights.
