Both oral and poster presentations allow students to build valuable professional and communication skills. Poster & Oral Presentations are open to all University of Minnesota students, residents, fellows, and alumni. Presentations can be made individually or in groups.
Applications are now open for the 2018-19 cohort of URTC student researchers! The Uganda Research Training Collaborative (RTC) matches students in the University of Minnesota’s Academic Health Center and participating institutions in Uganda to gain hands-on experience in global health research. Under the mentorship of UMN and Ugandan faculty, teams propose small-scale research projects to be carried out in about one year. Applications are due March 2, 2018.
Interdisciplinary teams presented their solutions to this year's case, Growing Pains: Palliative Care in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea on January 27, following a week of intense work.
