Med School Hosts First Scholarship Day

Scientific poster presentations highlight summer research projects by Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine Students

On November 14, 2012, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine’s students participated in the school’s first Scholarship Day, which highlighted the school-sponsored summer research projects the students conducted, both locally and overseas, on a wide range of health issues. Twenty-six students presented scientific posters to faculty, staff, research sponsors, department chairs, and senior leadership of the School of Medicine, Hofstra University and the North Shore-LIJ Health System.Many of the students worked with faculty members based at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and elsewhere within the North Shore-LIJ Health System, while other traveled abroad to work on public health projects. All of the students - whether their projects addressed basic biomedical, clinical, health outcomes, or clinical effectiveness questions - were mentored by faculty members

of the School of Medicine.
