2017 Research Symposium

We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the sixth annual MedStar Health Research Symposium on Monday, May 1, 2017, from 1 to 7 pm at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. Everyone in the MedStar community who wishes to learn more about the exciting research taking place across our system is invited to attend.

The Symposium brings together investigators, residents, executive leaders, associates and collaborative partners from across our system to share the clinical research being conducted. The Symposium will feature a keynote speaker and a large-scale abstract display from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, including more than 300 peer-reviewed projects from faculty, residents and fellows.

New this year, educational sessions will be offered at 1 pm, followed by oral presentations from the residents and fellows who received top scores on their abstract submissions. Educational sessions are being led by experts from the MedStar Health community and are open to all attendees. Space is limited for the educational sessions. Register today to reserve your seat.

Our keynote address will be delivered by Darrell G. Kirch, MD, president and chief executive officer of the Association of American Medical Colleges. A distinguished physician, educator, and medical scientist, Dr. Kirch speaks and publishes widely on the need for transformation in the nation’s health care system and how academic medicine can lead change across medical education, biomedical research, and patient care. His career spans all aspects of academic medicine and includes leadership positions at two medical schools and academic health systems, as well as at the National Institutes of Health.

    The GUMC Teaching Academy for the Health Sciences was established in 2015 to cultivate a community of faculty and educators.

This workshop provides an overview of the Teaching Academy and guidance on the application process, including how to develop an Educator’s Portfolio and  CV. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will have a detailed working plan for applying to the Teaching Academy. This workshop, and membership to the Teaching Academy, is open to both faculty and residents/fellows. 
  • A Primer on How to Conduct Systematic Reviews in Health Sciences
    Often used as a starting point for developing clinical practice guidelines, systematic reviews in health sciences education seek to answer what is known on a specific topic. This workshop provides an overview of systematic, scoping, and other types of comprehensive literature searches. Participants will learn the essential components and criteria of a rigorous systematic review, how to assemble and form a review team, and how to critique a systematic review in the social sciences.
  • Bringing Research to Life
    Learn how to transform the way we describe our work by crafting a compelling story that captures the attention of donors and other financial investors. This session will help you unlock the quarantined energy and emotion of your work by utilizing a narrative framework that has proven successful in raising funds for research of all types.
