2022 Research Forum

May 9-13, 2022

The MSU College of Human Medicine Flint Campus Research Forum is an opportunity to heighten the visibility of research and scholarly activities in the greater Flint medical community. The Research Forum also provides the opportunity to disseminate medical research findings, allowing area health care professionals to stay current with important trends in medicine and patient care management. 

We invite all faculty members, resident physicians, attending physicians, medical students, nurses, and other health professionals to participate in the forum.
