Research Symposium 2021 

The Research Symposium is a showcase of the hard work and dedication to intellectual curiosity by student doctors, residents, fellows, and faculty at KCU over the past year. We are so proud of their outstanding work and their contributions to the study of medicine through research. Please take some time to read, listen, and watch the amazing research that is ongoing at KCU by many talented researchers! Visit our Canvas site for virtual sessions for abstracts, posters and presentations.

The 2021 Symposium week will kick off April 6 with two prestigious keynote speakers, and award-winning student and faculty presentations. The week will proceed with live presentations of hand-selected research projects from students in the COM, COB and Bioethics programs. Join the Symposium activities in the Zoom room.
