The Capstone Poster Session is the culmination of the MSA program. All graduating medical students matriculating after 2006, including students meeting the MSA requirements through the Research Track or the MSTP program, present their work in a formal poster presentation.
The 2017 event will be on March 2, 2017 from 12:00 to 5:00. All School of Medicine Phase IV (Class of 2017) and Phase I students (Class of 2020) are required to attend.
Faculty members from across campus volunteer their time and expertise to evaluate the student’s posters and presentations. In addition, the students also evaluate the work of their peers; selecting a 'Student's Choice' poster(s) from each of the 5 MSA thematic areas.
In 2016, there were approximately 150 student presenters, and 50 faculty evaluators. Our goal is for each student to be visited by at least two faculty judges. If you a CU SOM faculty member and are interested in evaluating posters during the Capstone event or would like more information, please contact the MSA program at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Capstone is held during the ICC 8004 course, when all 4th year medical students are on campus.
