NE Ohio residents gather for research presentations
On May 3, 2012, all the Emergency Medicine residencies and pediatric fellowship programs in Northeast Ohio met for the first time. This historic event was organized to share research projects through oral presentations. Austen Bioinnovation Institute, a recently opened Akron collaborative simulation center, hosted the event.
Akron Children’s Hospital, Akron General Medical Center, MetroHealth, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, Summa Health System and Cleveland University Hospital were all represented. 23 different presentations were given in a half day format designed to let resident researchers practice their presentations before presenting nationally.
Ryan Squier, a senior resident from Akron General Medical Center, organized the event. This was the first time all the training programs between Akron and Cleveland got together for an event of this type. The event was a great success, and plans are underway to repeat the multi-institution collaborative conference in 2013.
