Come and discover the diverse range of projects being conducted by UBC students involved in biomedical heath research.

The UBCMJ is a student-run academic journal with a goal to engage students in dialogue in medicine. The journal’s scope ranges from original research and review articles in medicine to medical trends, clinical reports, elective reports and commentaries in the principles and practice of medicine.

The evening’s activities will include:
- A panel discussion featuring clinician researchers and residents discussing the incorporation of research into residency and clinical practice.
- The release of the newest issue of the UBC Medical Journal
- Undergraduate student poster presentations
- Undergraduate student mini oral presentations
Information for Presenters
Eligible students are encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster or short oral presentation based on their research. Abstract submission for the February 19, 2013 research forum is now closed.
Undergraduate students in the MD Undergraduate Program, Doctor of Dental Medicine Program and Faculty of Medicine Summer Student Research Program (2012 participants) are encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster or oral presentation at the 2013 forum. Works in progress are welcome, as are projects completed prior to the start of your current program (first year students only). Please note that participants are welcome to present work that has previously been presented or published in another venue; students are not required to make new posters specifically for this event.
All students who intend to present their work at the forum must submit:
- A completed Abstract Registration form
- A copy of the presentation abstract (MS Word file)
Both files should be submitted in a single email to research.forum [at] ubc.ca. Please follow the file naming conventions as discussed in the Author Guidelines.
*Please note that presenters must also register for the forum using the online registration form located here.
*It is recommended that you save a blank copy of the Abstract Registration form onto your computer and then fill it out as opposed to completing the form directly in your browser window; certain browser plugins will not allow you to save a copy of the completed form. In addition, some aspects of this form are not compatible with mac. Please use a pc to complete and send this form. (The form must be saved in its original PDF format to facilitate entry into the database.) Thank you.
