The UAMS Department of Internal Medicine Annual Research Symposium is an event to showcase the research activities and accomplishments of students, residents, and fellows under the mentorship of Internal Medicine faculty.  The event serves to celebrate the hard work of our trainees and provide a forum to see the breadth of activities being undertaken within the department.  Trainees will submit their abstracts for selection to formally present their research projects as oral or poster presentations.

Trainees are encouraged to submit both original work that has not been presented elsewhere as well as work that has been recently presented at local, regional, or national meetings since January 1st, 2018.  Original work presented first at the Annual Research Symposium remains eligible for submission to other local, regional, and national meetings as well as publication.

Six abstracts will be selected for oral presentations with remaining selected abstracts entered into the poster competition.  Presentations and posters will be judged by Internal Medicine faculty.  All students, residents, fellows, and faculty are encouraged to attend and participate.
