On Wednesday, March 6, 2019, the college held its ninth annual Student Research Symposium. The event highlighted the completion of the Scholarly Projects of our fourth-year medical students.
At the symposium, students presented their Scholarly Projects through poster and slide presentations. Last year, they were also privileged to hear distinguished professor Bentley J. Bobrow, MD, medical director for the Arizona Department of Health Services’ Bureau of EMS and Trauma System and associate director of the Arizona Emergency Medicine Research Center – Phoenix, deliver his keynote presentation, "EMS Research: Why You SHOULD Care."
