Rocky Mountain Healthcare Symposium

The Rocky Mountain Healthcare Symposium is hosted in the Denver Metro Area annually at the end of March/early April. In 2024, it was held on March 29th at The Medical Center of Aurora. It combines GME programs from five states: Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri. The symposium is specialty agnostic, providing an opportunity for residents and fellows to network with others in healthcare outside of their area of expertise. In 2024, the symposium included research presentations from residents and fellows, two poster sessions, and a competitive journal club. The results of the 2024 symposium are below.
