Research Day

The Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM) Research Day is an annual once-a-year meeting that celebrates the research endeavors of Liberty University students and faculty, as well as healthcare professionals from regional academic institutions and practice sites. The event provides a forum to disseminate their findings with oral and poster presentations that facilitate interactions and promote new collaborations between participating institutions. As a Research Day participant, you can learn about advances in various fields such as osteopathic manipulation, infectious diseases, physiology, and psychology while discovering ways to develop your research questions.

Medical students, residents, and undergraduates who conduct research under a LUCOM biomedical or clinical faculty member may present their data.

LUCOM students and resident participants are eligible to compete for Best Poster and Best Oral presentations. Additionally, oral and poster presentations from students outside of LUCOM are encouraged and desired to foster interactions among LUCOM and surrounding institutions.
