Annual Student Research Symposium

On September 29, 2014, the AU/UGA Medical Partnership hosted its fourth annual Student Research Symposium, which showcased the research activites of students during the summer between their first and second year of medical studies.  Students were encouraged to engage in a scholarly activity which could include laboratory science or clinical research.  Students more interested in a participatory clinical experience were encouraged to also engage in “inquisitive observation and reflection” in order to derive a more complete understanding of the health problems within the context of the greater community.

Approximately half of the current second-year class participated in a summer project, with XX conducting research as part of the MCG Medical Scholars Program.
