With a Grand Rounds presentation by Richard Pearson, MD, Professor Emeritus of Medicine, ten other oral presentations by Department of Medicine residents, fellows, and graduate students, and 83 poster presentations on an array of topics, the 2017 Carey-Marshall-Thorner Research & Scholars Day presented a remarkable overview of the scholarly production of DOM trainees and their faculty mentors.

DOM’s Vice Chair for Research Eric Houpt, MD, thanked Karen Ward and Tony Brinkman for their work in organizing and coordinating the event, as well as the faculty who reviewed abstracts and served as judges for the poster and oral presentations. (In the first round, in which submitted abstracts were reviewed, all the faculty listed below participated as reviewers, along with Chris McCartney (Endo) and Neeral Shah (GI).

Faculty judges – oral presentations: Alan Dalkin (Endo), Gerald Donowitz (ID), Allison Lyons (GGPHM), Jennifer Kirby (Endo), Michael Thorner (Endo-Emeritus), Brian Uthlaut (GGPHM)

Research & Scholars Day is an occasion to “showcase the hard work of our trainees,” commented Dr. Houpt, noting that they published a total of 162 articles over the course of the 2016-2017 academic year, with 72 by clinical fellows, 16 by residents, 60 by postdoctoral fellows, and 14 by medical students and graduate students.
