Poster session, Research & Scholars Day (on right is DOM’s director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program, Brian Uthlaut, MD)

Named for three eminent physician-scientists from UVA’s Department of Medicine — Robert Carey, John Marshall and Michael Thorner– the annual Carey-Marshall-Thorner Research and Scholars Day provides an occasion to learn about the research that our residents and fellows are conducting as a vital part of their educational experience.

This scientific gathering also serves as a vehicle to foster research collaborations, and a chance for faculty and trainees from the Department of Medicine’s ten divisions to learn about colleagues’ work and celebrate DOM’s breadth and depth of research.

The day’s events include Grand Rounds, oral presentations by trainees and new faculty members, a poster session open to residents, fellows, postdocs and graduate students, and an awards ceremony and reception.

All Department of Medicine trainees are encouraged to send a list of their publications from the previous year to Anthony Brinkman, Residency Coordinator.

Advanced registration is encouraged, even for those not presenting a poster or giving an oral presentation. Registration is free and allows appropriate planning for refreshments.
