Past Events


Abstract Workshops 

August 2018 
Faculty members helped review the process for writing a clinical vignette, review and revise any abstract drafts that you are working on, and provide general advice on preparing cases for conference presentation. Our goal with these workshops is to increase residents' knowledge and ability in writing up the great cases we see at Baylor College of Medicine, as well as to encourage collaboration between residents.

Poster Workshops 

This event is open to all medical students and residents. During the event, we will be reviewing everyone's posters in addition to providing feedback so that you can have your "game face" on when it comes time for your presentation.
