The UT Graduate School of Medicine and Academy of Scholars Committee held Resident and Fellow Research Day on Wednesday, May 27, where selected resident and fellow physicians presented their original research or case study in five-minute oral presentations. A total of 40 abstracts were originally submitted for consideration and a group of reviewers selected 21 abstracts for presentation. Reviewers included Valerie Berthelier, PhD, Michael Karlstad, PhD, Ronald Lands, MD, Dustin Osborne, PhD, Teresa Stephens, PhD, and Wesley White, MD. A panel of judges evaluated the presentations on research ideas, methods, results, potential contribution to medicine and presentation skills. The 2015 judges panel included Inga Himelright, MD, Leonard Hines, MD, Paul Huffstutter, MD, Stephen Kennel, PhD, and Jonathan Wall, PhD. The following physicians were awarded for their research at an awards luncheon June 5. See more photos from Research Day and the Awards ceremony on Flickr.
