Senior Scholars Program

 

The fundamental goal of the Senior Scholars Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical School is to increase the number of medical 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" by preparing a poster about their research project and sharing ideas with medical school peers and faculty members. This collection includes student posters, abstracts, and published journal articles authored by Senior Scholars.

Attention Senior Scholars: Click on Submit Research in the left sidebar to submit your final, approved poster. Please first review the submission guidelines and download a blank Approval form. You’ll need to log in or create a free account. Questions? Contact , the eScholarship@UMMS administrator.
