During Academic Day, 25 residents and fellows shared research or academic projects including seven oral presentations and 19 poster presentations. This work is in addition to their residency or fellowship training. “This is our third year holding the event, and each year the research gets better and better. I was blown away to find out what our trainees are accomplishing during their time here.
Many of the projects have the potential to directly improve the care of patients in our system," says Lori Rosenstein, MD, program director for Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship and physician organizer for Academic Day. “We couldn't continue to hold this event without the ongoing support of Service Excellence, Medical Media, Medical Research, Medical Education and Facilities. The continued enthusiasm and support has been outstanding."
