Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple • Temple, Texas
Scholars Day showcases the diversity and growth of scholarly pursuits at Baylor Scott & White Health’s Central Texas Division. Scholarly activity—medical innovation, clinical vignettes, research, health systems science, quality improvement, healthcare economics, and much more—is shared via electronic posters and podium presentations. A new podium presentation category, the Excellence Awards, will feature four projects nominated by physician-training residency and fellowship Program Directors with final selections made by the Scholarship Committee. Please join us in building collaborations and bringing together all departments and scholarship types.
Presentation materials, when available, maybe downloaded in pdf format. The password will be emailed to participants prior to the activity.
