The Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Society and the Office of Student Research in the Dean's Office have sponsored Medical Student Research Day (MSRD) for over 30 years. MSRD is a proud tradition for University of Maryland's medical students to present their research accomplishments to the school and the campus. The presentations are judged, and competitive prizes are awarded in recognition of outstanding research and presentations.
This year, the 35th annual MSRD will be held on Thursday, September 27, 2012. The keynote speaker for this year's program is Philip A. Mackowiak, M.D., M.B.A., Professor of Medicine, Vice Chairman of Department of Medicine, and Chief of Medical Care Clinical Center of the VA Maryland Health Care System. Dr. Mackowiak will speak on "Some Random Thoughts on Medical Evidence."
MSRD will begin at noon, and presentation sessions will end near 6:00 pm followed by the awards banquet until 8:00 pm.
