This conference incorporates nine different divisions within the entire Department of Surgery, for which the research in each division varies between basic, translational and clinical. Our conferences focus on being able to share best practices and information that is essential for all groups to learn, adapt and excel in the research world. The goal of the conference is to infuse the residency program, and the Department of Surgery as a whole, with academic achievement and collaboration. Residents, students and faculty present their research questions, projects, and ideas, and review at regular intervals how the projects are progressing. The format of the conference includes a 20 to 30 minute interactive lecture on a particular topic applicable to research. Selected guest lecturers are invited from inside and outside of the UF Health community. At the end of each meeting, an open forum takes place to spur new collaboration and projects. We aspire to promote the research of surgical ideas grounded in evidenced-based medicine that will impact practice patterns with the ultimate goal of improved patient outcomes.
This conference normally takes place on the 3rd Monday of the month at 5 P.M. Those interested in presenting their work or who need more information may contact Dr. Kerri O’Malley.
The conference is mandatory for current lab research residents and highly encouraged for all other research faculty, staff, residents and students.
