UCF COM/HCA GME Consortium First Annual Research Forum
Our first annual research forum was held April 20, 2017. Medical students and residents from various residency programs presented their research. Submissions were considered for case findings and clinical research with awards given for the best Oral and Poster presentation in each category. Chuck Klodell, M.D., our Medical Director of Cardiothoracic Surgery, was the guest speaker. We are very excited with the success of the event and will be continuing the tradition next year. More details on how to submit your abstract for next year’s research forum will be available closer to the date.
