Our 2nd Annual Scientific Conference has been just as successful as
the first one. This great accomplishment was a product of the
organizational role of the Planning Committee members, excellent
skills and teamwork from collaborating staff, the economic
incentives from our sponsors, and principally, the high
participation of the scientific community in general. Without the
capable judges that had such a difficult task of evaluating these
exceptional research project presentations, the awarding of the
prizes would have been even more difficult, if not impossible.
Faculty, students, and residents of our School and affiliated
institutions participated presenting a total of 67 research
abstracts, 11 more than that of last year. These were divided as
oral and poster presentations and later evaluated in the four main
categories: Clinical, Basic, and Behavioral, and Public Health. Each
category was awarded three prizes.
This year, we had the participation of Rafael Ruiz Quijano, M.D., as
Key Note Lecturer of our Central Conference, who offered the topic,
“Bioethics: Compass of the Professional Behavior in the Medicine
of Our Times”.
Through this annual activity our students and faculty present their
scientific productions to the general community allowing for the
interaction of participants in the different institutional programs.
