Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai's Research Day is held each year to showcase and disseminate new knowledge contributed by students through their investigative activities. The Medical Student Research Day takes place in spring. All Icahn School of Medicine medical students and MSTP students who are pursuing research studies are invited to submit an abstract and present a poster on their work. Students who receive Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai funding for a summer research project have committed to submitting an abstract for Research Day. Research presented must have been conducted during medical school, but may have been done at an institution other than Icahn School of Medicine.
The Research Day Advisory Committee reviews all submitted abstracts for Research Day. Four abstracts are selected for oral presentations. To be eligible for oral presentation, the student must be the first author of the abstract. Presentations should be 10 minutes, followed by five minutes for questions. The students giving oral presentations receive a $250.00 prize. Students not giving oral talks present their work as poster presentations.
