An annual research day is held each year to present resident research projects. All residents are required to complete a publishable project during their four years at WVU. These required projects are presented along with any other abstracts or papers completed during the previous year. Additionally, a prominent guest speaker is invited for a research related presentation and to help select the awards from the top three entries. Monetary awards are made to the top research presentation(s).
