Celebrating Residency Research at Second-Annual Symposium

Faculty, staff, judges, and residents gathered at Stanford Hospital on April 30 to recognize the many hours of research, mentorship and preparation behind the second Internal Medicine Residency Research Symposium. At the event, 42 residents presented 44 exceptional posters on a range of topics including diagnostics, Medicare costs, cancer therapies, genome expression and more.

These impressive efforts speak to the innovative spirit of Department of Medicine residents, who are worth celebrating: 80% of them pursue at least one month of research during their experience. Over the past year, 14 residents have published 28 manuscripts, and 18 residents have shared a total of 46 poster and oral presentations. The Symposium is also an acknowledgment of the importance of mentorship and guidance throughout residency, as many of these projects are made possible because faculty give their time and expertise.

At this year’s symposium, 12 judges examined aisles of poster boards, asked questions, provided insight and shared feedback with presenters. In the end, six residents were awarded with small monetary prizes. View event photos here.
