2nd Annual Medical Student Research Showcase

Queen’s School of Medicine is proud to host the 2nd Annual Medical Student Research Showcase on September 26, 2013. This event has been designed to offer opportunities for medical students engaged in summer research activities to showcase their work in posters displayed in the School of Medicine Building, and to celebrate excellence in the form of an oral plenary session. This plenary session, moderated by Dean Reznick, will feature up to three outstanding submitted projects, each delivered in a ten minute oral presentation. The students selected for the oral plenary and the top student poster presenter, as adjudicated by a judging panel, will jointly receive the Albert Clark Award for Medical Student Research Excellence.

The conference organizers are pleased to announce the development of a **NEW** Medical Student Research Showcase Community accessible via MEdTech. Here you will find all important information regarding the research showcase. We have also implemented a new electronic system for all abstract submissions. We encourage you to visit the new community regularly to stay up to date on important information regarding the showcase. Abstract submissions open on August 12, 2013 (08:00am) and more information will be forthcoming in the coming weeks.
