Graduate Student Research Day
Graduate Student Research Day has been an annual event since 2005, when it began in the Faculty of Medicine. Now, this event invites participation from graduate students from across the University, who are involved in health research.
Normally held in May, this event typically receives over 80 abstracts, which are presented during this full-day of platform and poster presentations. Presentations are adjudicated by experienced researchers, in the spirit of helping students further develop their presentation and research skills. All Dalhousie graduate students are welcome to present their health-related research at this event.
In addition to providing an opportunity for students to present their research, this event allows a rare chance for these students to learn about other health research happening in their community and to develop research collaborations with others outside their fields of expertise.
This is one of the largest research showcases on Dalhousie University campus and promotes the importance and presence of the excellent research happening here.
The main objectives of graduate student research day:
- to help students and trainees enhance their awareness of ongoing research and opportunities
- to allow students and trainees an opportunity to critically assess the features of a good research project
- to provide students and trainees an opportunity to consider how research fits with the ongoing process of health education
