RRA Inaugural Workshop/Research Hackathon – Thursday, April 27, 5:00 – 6:00 pm 

In-person opportunity 

We are hosting a first-ever AUR research workshop/hackathon that would allow trainees (residents, medical students, fellows) the opportunity to work with a faculty mentor for a 1-hour small group session. The trainee is expected to bring an idea and preliminary literature search. During this timed session, the teams of mentors and mentees will brainstorm and work together to work towards having a skeleton of an abstract that may be completed and submitted to an upcoming conference. 

Mentees should have an idea for an abstract and have performed a background literature search. This may be a scientific or educational exhibit. 

If you are interested in participating as a mentor or mentee, please register by March 1. Click here to sign up
