18 Mar Medical Student Summer Research Participants Win Big during the Virtual Poster Session
The 153 second-year medical students who participated in this year’s Summer Academic program for Medical Students (SAMS)/Medical Student Summer Research Training Program (MSSRP) displayed their project accomplishments during the 2020 Medical Student Research Virtual Poster Session.
Congratulations to the ten medical student summer research fellows who were selected as the top-ten winners of the Dr. Michael J. Dunn Poster Contest Awards held in conjunction with the 2020 Medical Student Research Virtual Poster Session. The posters were scored on innovativeness, experimental design and methodology, results and conclusions, and overall impression. Each awardee received a $500 prize.
All posters were well done! One hundred posters entered the competition. Twelve of the posters were in the basic science category and 82 posters were in the clinical science category. Ten awards (2 basic science and 8 clinical science) were chosen based on the scores from the faculty reviewers.
Please join CTSI in congratulating the ten medical students who received the Dr. Michael J. Dunn Poster Contest Award.
