The Surgical Resident Research Colloquium will follow the lecture at 1:30 p.m. and will be held at the same location. Each resident will present a research topic that will be judged by a panel of invited physicians. Every year the topics are chosen by the presenting resident with the research conducted under the guidance of a faculty sponsor. Time for questions and answers will follow each presentation. The top two presenters will be honored at the Chief Resident Graduation Banquet to be held following the research colloquium at 6:30 p.m. at the Ramada Plaza & Suites.
