Trainee Forum and Networking Reception

In 2015, for the third year in a row, SINAInnovations offered a dynamic program developed uniquely for medical students, graduate students, residents and postdoctoral trainees.

Our program began with a panel of successful entrepreneurs who've pioneered novel innovations in medicine, followed by a lecture mini-series highlighting translational research at Sinai, and, the first-ever, Sinai Young Innovators Pitch Competition. The day concluded with a networking reception where trainees met professionals from a diverse array of healthcare companies.

Networking Reception

Our networking event was designed for students and postdocs to learn about exciting career paths from industry experts. Professionals were seated at tables where they discussed their respective fields and what their jobs entail. Students and postdocs were able to circulate between tables to network and explore a variety of careers involving science, technology and medicine.
