Dr. Michael E. Cohen Resident Research Day

Beginning in your second year of neurology residency, you will share the latest information about your research project while celebrating your accomplishments during this annual event.

You will join other senior neurology residents to present your clinical or basic research project. Depending on the stage of your project, your presentation may focus on your proposal, progress, results and/or analysis.

The event recognizes the accomplishments of physician-scientists in training as well as the important role of the faculty and fellows who mentor them.


Your presentation is judged by neurology faculty — and possibly invited experts — and given a numerical grade, which is entered into your permanent record.

The highest-rated projects receive awards during our annual graduation ceremony.
