Medical Student Research Day

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) holds Medical Student Research Day every spring to showcase and disseminate new knowledge contributed by students through their investigative activities.

We invite all medical students and Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) students who are pursuing research studies to submit an abstract and present a poster. 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. Students must have conducted their research during medical school in order to present at Research Day, but they may have done the work at an institution other than the Icahn School of Medicine.

The Research Day Advisory Committee reviews all submitted abstracts for Research Day and selects four abstracts 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 prize. If you are not giving an oral talk, you may share your work in a poster presentation.
