The Graduate Medical Education (GME) office hosts poster presentations that highlight the original scholarly work conducted by residents and fellows of various training programs at Virginia Commonwealth University Health System. This annual event provides a platform for our resident physicians to showcase their diverse array of research in basic and clinical science, case presentations, and quality improvement and patient safety. It is also an opportunity for them to share their innovative work with peers, faculty, staff, and the local community in a professional setting.
