Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics Fourteenth Annual Research Day

Friday, March 6, 2020

On behalf of the Department of Pediatrics Research Day Committee, please accept this invitation to participate in the ​​Thirteenth Annual Department of Pediatrics Research Day.  The first ​twelve years of this event were overwhelmingly successful.  Greater than 68 abstracts were presented last year!  Let’s continue this level of enthusiasm and participation.

Research Day 2020 will be held Friday, March 6th in the ​Nicholson Tower 5th Floor Conference Center.

The abstract submission website will open in November and the abstract deadline is ​Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at 11:55 pm.    Please feel free to submit abstracts previously presented at other meetings (except for previous Department of Pediatrics Research Days).

The primary goals of Research Day are to showcase the various types of research, advocacy and QI projects active in our department, share our mutual interests, and develop intra- and interdepartmental collaborations.

We expect submissions from our current pediatric and med-peds residents.  In addition, we would like to see at least one submission per Section, and foresee Sections heavily engaged in research submitting several abstracts.  There is no limit to the number of abstracts a Section may submit.  Section Chiefs, please encourage faculty and fellows with any type of research, QI, or advocacy project to submit abstracts, as Research Day can only be as good as the quantity and quality of the content.

The Research Day Committee also encourages those individuals in Departments outside of Pediatrics whose primary research involves children to participate.  Please forward this webpage to anyone outside the Department of Pediatrics who you think may be interested in submitting an abstract.

Please do not hesitate to contact us Jeffrey-Eckert@ouhsc.edu or Laura-Rooms@ouhsc.edu should you have any questions or need clarification.

Check this website for updated information about abstract submission, presenter instruction, research day schedule, etc.
