Surgical Resident Research Colloquium
The purpose of the annual Surgery Resident Research Colloquium is for the presentation of each general surgery resident’s research project for the academic year. First- and second-year residents present posters of their projects in development. Third, fourth and fifth year residents give oral presentations of their projects. Presentations are judged by a panel of clinical and basic science faculty with the winning projects in each category awarded at the Chief Resident Graduation Banquet. Many of the research projects will be presented at regional or national meetings, and submitted for peer-reviewed publication.
