The annual Resident Research Forum provides all St. Mary Mercy resident physicians the opportunity to present their research projects at a local scientific meeting. In addition, it allows faculty members, residents and registrants the opportunity to exchange scientific information on advances in diagnosis and medical management of patients. The first St. Mary Mercy Resident Research Forum was held in 2012.
The Resident Research Forum features a keynote speaker and resident physician research oral and poster presentations. Presentations highlight management of common diagnoses and unusual exotic diseases. A judging panel awards participants in the Oral Presentation and Poster Presentation categories. All health care professionals and students are welcome to attend.
