Capstone Projects 

The Capstone Poster Session is the culmination of the MSA program. All graduating medical students matriculating after 2006, including students meeting the MSA requirements through the Research Track or the MSTP program, present their work in a formal poster presentation. 

The 2024 event was on April 8th.  All School of Medicine Phase IV students (Class of 2024) presented their scholarly works to faculty and Phase I students (Class of 2027) and were judged based on their presentations.      

Faculty members from across campus volunteer their time and expertise to evaluate the student’s posters and presentations. In addition, the students also evaluate the work of their peers; selecting a 'Student's Choice' poster(s) from each of the 5 MSA thematic areas. 

Our goal is for each student to be visited by at least two faculty judges. If you are a CU SOM faculty member and are interested in evaluating posters during the Capstone event, please contact the MSA program at The Capstone is held during the final Transition to Residency Basecamp course, when all 4th year medical students are on campus.
