Celebrating Research Efforts
Entering its third decade, Postgraduate Recognition Day highlights the research efforts of residents and fellows, who are invited to submit abstracts for presentation and/or posters for display. Submissions represent but a fraction of the scholarly work that has been produced or is ongoing by our residents.
All submissions are reviewed by a selection committee. Five abstracts are presented to an audience of medical staff, residents and fellows, as well as alumni and emeritus staff. The event is sponsored by the Department of Medical Education and Alumni Association.
Congratulations to the residents/fellows whose abstracts were selected for presentation by the Postgraduate Recognition Day Review Committee. Click on titles to read submissions.
