The 11th annual Resident/Fellow Research Day, held April 19, 2023, was an opportunity for graduate medical education trainees from Penn State Health to share their research work.

Moderated by Dr. Kent Vrana, the day consisted of three oral presentations at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and also showcased 12 in-person posters that were presented directly following the oral presentations. In addition, and new to Resident/Fellow Research Day, was a virtual component that hosted 31 poster presenters.

Of the 56 abstracts submitted, the top three were chosen to be oral presenters based on the decision of a judging committee consisting of 20 members from Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine. The other applicants were invited to present posters either during the in-person poster session or for the virtual session.

The virtual posters are still available for viewing here.

The 12th annual Resident/Fellow Research Day will be held in spring 2024.
