DAGMEC 21st Annual Virginia C. Wood Resident Research Forum

We would like to thank everyone for their participation in the 21st Annual Virginia C. Wood Resident Research Forum that took place virtually this year. We tried to make this virtual event experience as close to the live event as possible. This event provides trainees with an opportunity to present their work and receive feedback on their research from 3 faculty judges. 84 residents/fellows presented their scholarly work to 37 voluntary judges from around the graduate medical education community.

We extend our sincere thanks to all who give their time and efforts to support graduate medical education.
