The 2014 Department of Medicine Annual Resident/Fellow Research Symposium, which took place Tuesday, June 3, featured a large turnout and lots of conversation and activity. Eighty-one posters were on display, including 57 from members of the Internal Medicine Residency Program (an increase of 13 over last year), 16 from Medicine fellows, six from Dermatology residents, and two from medical students and/or other pre-MDs.

Resident and fellow posters were judged separately, and the winners and honorable mentions are listed below. Cash prizes were awarded ($400 for 1st place, $300 for 2nd place, and $200 for 3rd place). 

"I thank Bettina Fries, and Anna Manca and her staff for all their work in making the Symposium a success, as well as the trainee investigators and their mentors," said Dr. Victor Schuster, Chairman of the Department of Medicine.   

Resident Prizewinners and Honorable Mentions will make formal presentations at the June 12th Medicine Grand Rounds.
