Advancing Health Through Research

Hosted by the MedStar Health Research Institute and MedStar Health Academic Affairs, the MedStar Health Research Symposium is open to all members of the research community interested in learning more about research at MedStar. The Symposium offers the opportunity to connect with researchers, 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.

We create knowledge through research each and 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.

The Symposium features scientific poster presentations from researchers across the system and the spectrum of care, information on research support services offered by MedStar Health Research Institute and the opportunity to connect with residents and researchers dedicated to advancing health.

Beginning in 2017, the Symposium also welcomed all residents and fellows at MedStar Health for a system-wide Resident Research Day. In addition to presenting abstracts and case reports, top scoring residents and fellows are invited to present their work through oral presentations.

All attendees are invited to participate in an educational session, offered as part of registration in the afternoon. This is an opportunity to learn more about research support services at MedStar and to hear from experts in the MedStar Health community.
