Surgical Research Conference

The Surgical Research Conference is a lunchtime conference and occurs twice per month. The goal of the conference is to infuse the residency program, and the Department of Surgery as a whole, with academic achievement and collaboration. Residents, students, and faculty present their research questions, projects, and ideas, and review at regular intervals how the projects are progressing. The format of the conference includes a 20-30 minute interactive lecture on a particular topic applicable to research. Selected guest lecturers are invited from inside and outside of the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine/Boston Medical Center community. At the end of each meeting, an open forum takes place to spur new collaboration and projects.

The conference is highly encouraged but not mandatory.
