UNE COM Research and Scholarship Forums

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.
