  • Research Day Presentation Registration

    Medical Student Research Day will be held on Friday September 2, 2016. Any medical student in the Carver College of Medicine may apply to present a poster. All students who want to present on Research Day must register and submit a one-page abstract. Abstracts are to be submitted at the time of registration and are required for all presentations.

    Only students who participated in the 2016 Summer Research Fellowship (SRF) or MSTP Summer Research (SUMR) programs are eligible to give an oral presentation, and only the summer program participants will have their work evaluated by the judges on Research Day.  

    The registration and abstract submission deadline for Poster presentations is 4:00 PM on August 24, 2016. Your completed abstract must be submitted with your application.

    SRF and SUMR Students: The deadline for Oral presentation consideration is 4:00 PM on August 22, 2016. Your completed abstract must be submitted with your application by this time to be considered for an oral presentation. Fill in your preference for Oral under "Presentation Type" on the registration form. If we have more applicants than we can accommodate for the oral presentation slots, student presenters will be chosen by the IMSRP staff and research council. The August 22 deadline is firmly set in order to let students know, in a timely manner, whether they will be giving an oral or poster presentation. There will be approximately 40 oral presentation slots available. If you are not selected to give an oral presentation, you will be assigned to present a poster instead.

    If you are planning a poster presentation only, the August 24 4:00 PM registration deadline applies.

    The Awards Banquet for Research Day presentations will be held on Friday, September 9, 2016. While this event is not required, all presenters are strongly urged to attend. Award winners will be announced following dinner and a guest speaker presentation. The awards banquet will be held in the IMU Ballroom from 6-8PM. Students and mentors are each allowed to bring one guest to the banquet.
