MSA Capstone Presentations

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. 

All School of Medicine Phase IV students (Class of 2024) will present their scholarly works and Phase I students (Class of 2027) will judge presentations to gain experience with research symposiums and scholarly works from peers

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.
