Welcome to the Department of
Pediatrics Research Day


Pediatric RD 2022


On behalf of the Department of Pediatrics Research Day Committee, please accept this Save the Date to participate in the Sixteenth Annual Department of Pediatrics Research Day.  The first fifteen years of this event have been overwhelmingly successful, showcasing the depth and breadth of the research occurring within our department and The Children's Hospital. Greater than 100 abstracts were presented last year! 

The primary goals of Research Day are to showcase the various types of research, advocacy and QI projects active in our department, share our mutual interests, and develop intra- and interdepartmental collaborations.

We expect submissions from our current pediatric and med-peds residents.  In addition, we would like to see at least one submission per Section, and foresee Sections heavily engaged in research submitting several abstracts.  There is no limit to the number of abstracts a Section may submit.  Section Chiefs, please encourage faculty and fellows with any type of research, QI, or advocacy project to submit abstracts, as Research Day can only be as good as the quantity and quality of the content.

Key Dates:
Abstract Submissions Open - November 22, 2021
Abstract Submissions Closes - January 12, 2022
Abstract Withdrawal Deadline - January 31, 2022

The Research Day Committee also encourages those individuals in Departments outside of Pediatrics whose primary research involves children to participate.  Please forward this webpage to anyone outside the Department of Pediatrics who you think may be interested in submitting an abstract.

Please do not hesitate to contact us or should you have any questions or need clarification.

Check this website for updated information about abstract submission, presenter instruction, research day schedule, etc.
