Research Day 2021 Virtual

April 27, 2021

We are pleased to announce that the 19th Annual Department of Medicine Research Day will be held on April 27th, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our anticipated requirements to maintain “social distancing,” the Department of Medicine has made the decision to offer the event virtually this year!

The event will again showcase clinical resident research, and junior faculty, fellow and graduate student research. Katrina Armstrong, MD, MSCE, Jackson Professor at Harvard Medical School, and Physician-in-Chief, Department of Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital will join us virtually as our guest speaker.

Our annual event uses oral and poster presentations to highlight current research conducted by trainees and junior faculty in the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Medicine. This event celebrates the breadth and depth of research conducted by our junior colleagues. At the end of the event, awards are given to the highest rated posters.

Faculty with rank at or below the assistant professor level, medical residents, and graduate and medical student researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts. We also encourage post-doctoral fellows who are research associates or assistants, working in Department of Medicine laboratories with the following degrees: MD, PhD, DDS, DO, MBBS or ScD, to submit. Multiple abstracts from one laboratory are allowed. However, investigators and fellows from a single laboratory cannot submit identical abstracts. Please note that case studies and literature reviews cannot be submitted.

Please note: Only one abstract may be submitted per person. We will have a limit on the number of abstracts accepted.
