Postgraduate Day 2010
Summa Akron City and St. Thomas Hospitals hosted its 18th Annual Postgraduate Day with a new format for 2010. The scientific research competitions took place on two days. The interactive poster presentations session was held on Friday, June 4th, from 4:00 - 6:00pm in the Ann & David Brennan Critical Care Center Lobby. It made for a nice setting where the presenters were able to discuss their research with the postgraduate day judges and others from our research community. There were many positive comments about the new format, as well as the opportunities everyone had to converse about the projects. Thirty-seven posters were presented in the research categories of basic science, clinical science and medical education.
The oral presentations session was held on the following Monday, June 7th, from 8:00 - 11:30am in the Raymond C. Firestone Auditorium. Fifteen papers were presented in the research categories of basic science, clinical science and medical education. The presenters each did an excellent job sharing the results of their work, and many interesting questions were brought forth by the audience. Winners of the various research categories were awarded at the dinner banquet held that evening.
