Celebration of Scholarship

The Celebration of Scholarship is an annual research poster session for residents, fellows and faculty educational researchers.

This interactive, interdisciplinary day showcases UB research and provides participants with experience in poster presentation, as well as the opportunity to interact with other UB researchers.

A major component of the day is the structured feedback participants receive on their work from UB research faculty. By presenting a poster, and hearing colleagues present their work, you’ll gain valuable experience discussing and defending your scholarly work.

You’ll meet like-minded investigators eager to share ideas that can further your investigations. You’ll also augment your CV by presenting your work, and perhaps win an award for your efforts.

Residents, fellows and junior faculty from all specialties are invited to participate in this interdisciplinary event. Clinical and basic research, quality improvement projects, educational and epidemiological research are all welcome.
