About our Research and Scholarship Forums

UNE's College of Osteopathic Medicine’s (COM) research and scholarship forums are intended to share and celebrate the research conducted by our UNE COM students. Preparing and presenting a poster is a skill and the UNE COM Research and Scholarship Committee embraces its mission for advancing research within UNE COM by supporting our students as they conduct and present their research. Medical students have several opportunities to present their research projects.
