The Annual RISE Student Symposium was established to showcase
medical student successes via oral presentations and provide a platform to illustrate
the benefits of lifelong scholarship. This is a well-attended event by MCOM faculty, USF leadership and students.
The 13th Annual RISE Student Symposium was held virtually on
Friday, October 28th , 2022
All medical students who were funded for scholarly work in the summer between years 1 and 2 are required to submit an abstract of their outcomes at the USF Health Research Day
held in the spring. Selected students are invited to deliver an oral presentation based on their abstract submission. Poster presentations are judged in a variety of categories for awards.
Graduating medical students are invited to display their scholarly work at the
Gallery of Scholarship held during the pre-function event for the commencement dinner.
