Pediatrics Research Day
NYU Langone’s Department of Pediatrics hosts an annual Research Day to highlight the research efforts of medical students, residents, fellows, and faculty in the department. More formally known as Dancis Day for Pediatric Research, the event is dedicated to the memory of former department chair Joseph P. Dancis, MD, an accomplished researcher who was devoted to fostering research opportunities in the department and training young pediatricians.
The program features a keynote lecture from a luminary in pediatric academic medicine, oral presentations, and poster sessions on topics from basic science, medical education, and clinical research.
The department’s 13th annual Research Day was held on May 14, 2019. Presenters spoke on a variety of subjects, including “The Effect of an Academic Half-Day Curriculum on In-Training Exam Scores and Resident Satisfaction with Board Preparations” and “Using QI Science to Promote Consistent Application of Family-Centered Rounding Best Practices on the Pediatric Hospital Medicine Service.”
Mary J. Messito, MD, a physician–scientist with a focus on pediatric obesity, wrapped up the event with a keynote address titled “My Research Career: A Work in Progress.”
The annual event, which takes place each spring, celebrates the breadth and depth of the research being conducted in the Department of Pediatrics and provides an opportunity to hear and learn from people of differing training levels, ranging from medical students to the department chair.
