About the Symposium
June 9-10, 2023
To highlight the academic achievements of the trainees in our department, we hold an annual Research Symposium.
All residents and fellows in the department are asked to submit a completed project, work in progress or project plan for the symposium. Medical students, graduate students and undergraduate students who have been working on surgical research projects at Baylor College of Medicine are also encouraged to submit their work. We also welcome submissions from postdoctoral research fellows and non-faculty staff in the Department of Surgery.
This meeting will promote the latest surgical knowledge, techniques, research, and education to those attending, which will bring this knowledge of information back to their practice groups and/or departments to disseminate further increasing the continual knowledge from this meeting as well as share with others and their specialties.
