In order to best protect the health and safety of our community, we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 MedStar Health-Georgetown University Research Symposium and Colloquium for Educators in the Health Professions. The event was scheduled for Monday, April 6.
We understand the time it takes to ready an abstract for submission and we thank all of you who shared your research with us. We are currently evaluating options for sharing the great research from across our community and timing to reschedule the event.
Our collective health is critical and ensures we can continue serving the needs of our patients and communities.
We continue to advance health through research every day, with the great work of our investigators in diverse areas of research, partnerships with our clinical leaders and support of our colleagues throughout the system.
Beginning in 2019, MedStar Health welcomed Georgetown University Medical Center’s CENTILE to collaborate on the event and host the Colloquium for Educators in the Health Professions on the same day.
Hosted by the MedStar Health Research Institute, MedStar Health Academic Affairs, and Georgetown University Medical Center, the MedStar Health-Georgetown University Research Symposium is open to all members of the research and education community interested in learning more about scholarship at MedStar and Georgetown. The Symposium offers the opportunity to connect with researchers, educators, residents, executive leaders, and collaborative partners from across the region and our system to build meaningful relationships to further advance the health of our community.
This full-day event brings together the MedStar Health and Georgetown University communities to celebrate the great work of our colleagues. It offers the unique opportunity to connect with researchers, educators, residents, executive leaders, and collaborative partners from across the region and our system to build meaningful relationships to further advance the health of our community.
