The University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine’s (UNE 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. Each year in September, UNE COM hosts a Research & Scholarship Student Forum. In midwinter, the Maine Osteopathic Association in conjunction with UNE COM hosts a Research Symposium opened to all of our medical students. In addition, in May of each year, the Northeast Osteopathic Medical Education Network (NEOMEN), invite UNE COM students and any osteopathic medical students at NEOMEN residency sites to participate in their yearly Research & Scholarship Forum along with interns, residents, and residency faculties in NEOMEN's AOA-accredited residencies. Awards are given to first authors receiving the highest scores in specific award categories in each research forum.
The Call for Abstracts forposter presentations has closed and will reopen in August for the UNE COM Fall Research and Scholarship Forum
All UNE COM students, OMS I–OMS IV, are eligible to participate.
