Gulf Coast Division Research Day 2024

The 4th annual Gulf Coast Division Research Symposium is hosted in the month of April. In 2024, it was held on April 10th at HCA Houston Healthcare Kingwood. It combines GME programs from cities in Texas: Kingwood, Houston, Clearlake, and Corpus Christi. 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, we received 76 poster submission and of those 10 projects made it to the oral stage. The results of the 2024 symposium are below.
