Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Resident Research Day

The Department of PM&R Resident Research Day is an annual symposium to showcase resident research projects. This half-day event held in May includes an invited guest professor who kicks off the event with a lecture followed by resident presentations. At the end of the event, selected faculty judges score presentations based on categories of criteria for “Best Research” and “Best Oral Presentation.”
