Senior Scientific Session

The annual Senior Scientific Session was founded in 1946 by Dr. Leon Jacobson to provide fourth year medical students with a forum to present their research. Each year, nearly one-third of the graduating class participates in this event. Student presentations and posters are judged by a panel of faculty members. Seven cash prizes for excellence in science and presentation will be awarded at the Divisional Academic Hooding Ceremony.
