The work of several University of Miami Miller School of Medicine students and residents was highlighted at the Palm Beach County Medical Society’s James J. Byrnes Future of Medicine Poster Symposium, held at the Hilton Palm Beach in West Palm Beach.
The students who presented at the January 30 symposium are part of the four-year M.D./M.P.H. program offered at the Miller School’s regional medical campus, and the residents represented the internal medicine residency training program at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis. They were joined by students and residents from several other medical institutions, including Florida Atlantic University, Nova Southeastern University, and the Palm Beach County Health Department.
“The symposium represents many of the medical education programs in our community,” said Gauri Agarwal, M.D., assistant professor of medicine and associate dean for clinical curriculum, who coordinates the symposium along with Tulisa LaRocca, M.D. “It’s an event that exhibits our community’s collaborative efforts in scientific discovery and allows us to learn from significant cases that will improve care for our patients.”
Named after James J. Byrnes, a former family medicine clerkship director at the Miller School, the symposium offers students, residents, fellows and other physician-scholars an opportunity to share significant research and interesting clinical vignettes.
