UCSF medical students and mentors shine with inquiry, innovation, and discovery

May 5, 2017

Over 100 medical students, mentors, faculty and staff gathered earlier this week in the Millberry Union Gymnasium for the 2017 Inquiry Symposium and Pathways to Discovery Awards presentation. 

The annual event showcases and celebrates research by students and residents from the UCSF schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Nursing.

The Inquiry Symposium—sponsored by the UCSF Pathways to Discovery Program and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute(link is external)—is a key campus education event that celebrates scholarly accomplishments of learners from all the UCSF schools.

“We are so proud of our students, whose research efforts and collaborations with peers and mentors are already delivering a vast body of knowledge to the international medical community, and helping to improve the care of patients at UCSF,” said Chris Stewart, MD, Chair of the Pathways Program Board, and Director of the Global Health Pathway.  

This year, over 80 posters were presented in categories including Global Health, Molecular Medicine, Clinical and Translational Science, Health and Society, and Clinical and Translational Research.  Read the full story here.
