Scientific Conference Date


Our 1st Annual Scientific Conference has been a great success.  This endeavor has been such a great accomplishment due to the effort of many.  Among these, the organizational role of the Planning Committee members, excellent skills and team work from collaborating staff, the economic incentives from our sponsors, and principally, the high participation of the scientific community in general, and the exceptional research project presentations.  We also thank the judges that had the very difficult task of awarding the prizes.  

A total of 56 research abstracts were presented, with the participation of faculty, students, and residents of our School and affiliated institutions.  27 of these were oral presentations, while there were 29 posters to be evaluated.  Prizes were awarded in these two types of presentations in three main categories:  Clinical, Basic, and Behavioral/Public Health.  The variety of topics allowed for the interaction of participants in the different institutional programs.  

This activity is intended to be an annual one to allow our students and faculty to present their scientific productions to the community.
