Registration for fall is ongoing for continuing students. Please see the summer registration page.
Scholars Day 2014 will take place on Tuesday, April 15th in the George Sherman Union with abstract submissions due 4/6.
The abstract submission form for Scholars Day 2014 will be available between March 17-31 (starting and ending at noon on those dates) at http://www.bu.edu/provost/scholars-day-2014/. Advisors will be asked to approve student abstracts by Sunday, April 6th. Students whose abstracts are not approved by the deadline will not have a designated location at the event.
All graduate students in a degree-granting program at Boston University who are also engaged in research in any area of study are invited to participate. Postdoctoral researchers are also welcome, but are not eligible for awards.
This event is intended to honor and celebrate research by our graduate students and has been held at Boston University for nearly two decades. Originally, the event focused on science and engineering research, but was expanded in recent years to include the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Over time, the number and quality of presentations has grown enormously, as has the number of awards presented by schools, college, centers and institutes. The judging forms used by schools and colleges provide feedback to students from faculty reviewing the work.
This year, we hope to further encourage submissions from the arts and humanities by including panels, the conventional format for presenting research in these disciplines. Panels will be built around scholarly areas that emerge from the abstracts submitted.
Those students presenting posters will be asked to set up beginning at 9:30 a.m. Poster judging will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Please plan to be present during as much of this time as possible, as you may need to assist the judges in their understanding of your work. Panel judging will take place during the sessions themselves, which will be scheduled in advance.
If you are a graduate student or post-doc, we hope you will consider participating (Post-docs are not eligible for awards). If you are a member of the faculty, we hope you will consider volunteering to judge and provide feedback, encouraging your graduate students to become involved, and persuading your undergraduate students to attend.

In the event of existing or projected weather conditions or other emergency/disaster situations, GMS may cancel classes. Cancellation of GMS classes will be communicated by posting the cancellation announcement on the GMS website and/or by the individual course manager. This may be independent of other closings throughout the medical campus.
If the medical campus is closed for the day, then no GMS classes will be held. Note that Boston University’s Charles River Campus may be closed while the Boston University School of Medicine remains open, in which classes will be held unless otherwise noted. Announcements and information regarding all Boston University closings or delayed openings will be made on local radio and television stations, as well as the GMS website.

There will be joint MED/GMS/SDM/SPH flu clinics at the medical campus so all students on the medical campus will have an opportunity to get a flu shot. If your program and/or courses require working with patients or spending any time in the hospitals or clinics then you must obtain a sticker to be placed on your BU ID after the flu shot. If you do not comply you will NOT be permitted in these areas unless you wear a mask.
Following are dates, times and locations.
Nov 4th from 11:00 am- 3:00 pm in Hiebert Lounge
Nov. 7th from 4:00 pm -7:00 pm in Hiebert Lounge
Nov 14th 7:30 am-12:00 pm in Hiebert Lounge
Nov 18th from 10:00 am -1:50 pm in Rooms L212/L214
Please note the following:
- Flu shot is covered 100% for the students who have BU’s Aetna Student Health Insurance.
- Students with other health insurances will be charged $30 that will be placed on the student’s account. Student Health Services (SHS) will provide a receipt to submit to their insurance for repayment.
- All students that attend these clinics will have a sticker applied to their ID regardless of which school or program they are in.
- Students that attend a clinic on the CRC campus or at SHS will need to self-identify that they are in need of a sticker. We will then be able to apply the sticker at that time.
- Students that choose to get a flu shot outside of clinics offered by SHS will need to provide a medical record showing that they received the vaccine. This medical record will need to be turned in to SHS.
- This can either be walked in to SHS, mailed in, faxed in (617-353-3557), or the student can present this information at one of our clinics. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THIS INFORMATION – it is protected health information.
- Once documented, you can check with Dr. Hee-Young Park at the GMS office to obtain a sticker.
