Department of Surgery to hold resident research symposium

The Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Department of Surgery will host the Daniel W. Elliott Resident Research Symposium on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. The annual event takes place after Grand Rounds at Miami Valley Hospital Fred E. Weber Center, Room L128, 128 E. Apple Street, Dayton, Ohio, 45409. The event provides medical residents and students opportunities to share and present their research projects.
