As part of Geisinger’s continuing education program and in an effort to foster institutional growth and exchange, the Clinical Research Symposium presents seminars on topics germane to the health sciences and biomedical research. Each seminar is held monthly throughout the year in the Henry Hood Center; admission is free, and Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit is available for participants.
The lectures are presented by members of Geisinger’s academic research community or distinguished visiting scholars and scientists and are attended by roughly 50 participants, including physicians, medical students, residents, researchers, post-doctoral fellows, interns and Geisinger staff. The symposium is a relatively new venture currently under the auspices of Geisinger’s Center for Health Research with sponsorship partly provided by an educational grant from Merck and Company, Inc.
Previous seminars have spanned a wide breadth of scientific topics, fields and disciplines, including titles such as Genetic and Biochemical Association of Paraoxonase with Alzheimer's Disease and Associated Phenotypes; Statistical Methods for Estimating Age-Specific Incidence and Remission Rates from Cross-Sectional Survey Data; and Obesity, Diabetes Mellitus and the Risk of New Onset Atrial Fibrillation.
