Research Day

Each year in May, the Ob/Gyn & Women’s Health Institute holds the Annual Research Day. This tradition began in 2016 with over 100 attendees, including residents, fellows, staff, and past and present Chairs of the institute in attendance.

PGY2 residents are required to present poster presentations of their research project. PGY3 residents will present their oral presentations. This is a requirement of the program and is led by the institute's Vice Chair of Research, Ruth Farrell, MD.

Key Note Address

Each Research Day will have a Visiting Professor for our Key Note Address and a lunchtime lecture entitled “Innovations in Ob/Gyn” that will highlight fascinating research and clinical expertise within the last academic year.
