The Senior Scholars Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) provides medical students with an opportunity for scholarly activities that serve not only as an introduction to the philosophy of research based on answering questions through hypothesis generation, information gathering, experimentation, and critical interpretation, but as a tool for growth in an evidence-based health care environment. The fundamental goal of the Senior Scholars Program is to increase the number of students participating in research activities, and, in so doing, increase their understanding of scientific methods that can be applied directly to problem solving skills development and critical thinking. Each student participates in "Senior Scholars Presentation Day" preparing a poster and sharing ideas with medical school peers and faculty members. This collection includes student posters, abstracts, and published journal articles authored by Senior Scholars.
