Med Student Research on Display at Scholarship Day 2015

The Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine will host its fourth annual Scholarship Day on Wed., Nov. 4, 2015, from 6pm to 8pm at the School of Medicine featuring the investigative work of nearly 70 students, a group that includes both MD and MD/PhD candidates.

Interested in attending?

Scholarship Day is held each fall at the School of Medicine to showcase and disseminate new knowledge contributed by medical students of all years of study who participated in summer research activities. From population studies to disease interventions, all student studies are guided from start to finish by School of Medicine faculty mentors.

"It is an event that reinforces the importance of collaborative and experiential learning," said Joel N.H. Stern, PhD, assistant professor of science education and neurology at the School of Medicine as well as chair of the Student Research Advisory Committee. "Research participation can help students build a foundation for evidence-based medicine and lead to a better understanding of how treatments are developed, how to evaluate information in a more objective manner, and foster important problem-solving skills." 

Students at the School of Medicine who pursue research studies are invited to submit an abstract and present a poster on their work. A committee made up of School of Medicine faculty reviews all submitted abstracts. On Scholarship Day, students have the opportunity to present their work in poster presentations while also verbalizing the basis for their investigations to event participants and attendees. This year's Scholarship Day will feature more than 60 posters.
