Award-winning med students to present research projects

Medical students from the Windsor campus of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry will discuss their research projects with clinicians and scientists on Thursday, Sept. 15.

The 10 presenters will each take five minutes to discuss their work as a participant in the Schulich-UWindsor Opportunities for Research Excellence Program, which has them conduct research under the supervision of a UWindsor faculty member.

The program offers 10 weeks of intensive, hands-on research experience, contributing to the medical students’ academic and professional growth by offering opportunities to participate in seminars, networking, social activities, and a final presentation to demonstrate their research work.

Thursday’s presentations will be held under the auspices of Windsor Regional Hospital “grand rounds,” which bring together scientists from varying fields to address questions. It is open to the broader health research community and will run 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. Click here for more information, including a list of speakers and topics, and to register.

Devinder Moudgil, medical student research associate with the WE-Spark Health Institute, says the event is exciting.

“It is helping to advance health research and encourages medical students’ participation in research by having clinicians and residents from the hospital and University of Windsor faculty members and students attend these presentations,” says Dr. Moudgil.

WE-Spark welcomes inquiries from clinicians regarding academic appointment at the University of Windsor. Its team is available to support health research projects and assist in developing partnerships for research.
