Each year, we look forward to bringing together investigators, educators, executive leaders, associates, and collaborative partners from across our academic health system to share their research and build meaningful relationships to further advance health for our community. After a two-year hiatus from holding the Symposium in person, it is our goal to make this year’s the best it has ever been. With that goal in mind, we have decided to postpone this year’s event to Monday, October 3, 2022.

Additional information and details about the new event will be forthcoming. Please contact if you have questions.

We thank those who have already submitted your abstracts.

To showcase the research studies submitted, we will also be hosting an abridged virtual event on May 9th, 2022. Recognizing that many residents/fellows are graduating or have other pressing timelines that will not allow for a fall presentation of their research, the MedStar Health – Georgetown University Virtual Resident & Fellow Spring Research Exhibition will be held on Monday, May 9th, 12:00 – 1:30 pm. The Exhibition will feature presentations from selected residents and fellows. The Scientific Review Committee will select the highest scoring abstracts for presentation which will be followed by a celebration of the outgoing class of our GME community members. For faculty who have already submitted abstracts, we will follow up with you individually and notify you when the abstract portal for the October Symposium will open.

Immediately following, the Center for Innovation and Leadership in Education (CENTILE) will host an abridged virtual Colloquium for GUMC Educators in the Health Professions on May 9th, 1:30 – 5:30 pm.  All faculty, staff, and trainees are encouraged to attend this event as well.

  Frequently Asked Questions 

  1. I already submitted my abstract, what do I do now?
    - For Residents/Fellows: No further action is required; your submission will be reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee and you will receive a notification if your abstract has been accepted for presentation at the May 9th virtual event.  
    - For Faculty: We will follow up with you directly with additional information. However, we will ask you to re-submit your abstract for the Fall event when the portal opens again this summer.  
  1. If I am chosen to present in the spring, will I also present in the fall?
    - Residents/fellows who have already submitted abstracts will be notified if they have been selected to present during the virtual spring event.  
    - Submissions will only be judged once. If you have already submitted an abstract, we also encourage you to submit another abstract for the larger fall event. 
  1. Can I attend both events?
    All are welcome and encouraged to attend both the virtual May 9th event and the in-person October 3rd event. We look forward to celebrating the incredible work of our research and education community with all of you!
