Info for Presenters


We are proud to announce the plans for the 31st Annual HST Forum on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at the TMEC Atrium and TMEC 209. As an HST student, your participation is key to making this event a success. We encourage all HST students to attend, as it is a wonderful opportunity to network with faculty and alumni/ae, as well as to show your support for fellow HST students and the program as a whole.

For students who have spent more than 4 months in a laboratory and do not have clinical clerkship responsibilities, we expect you will actively participate by submitting posters. The work need not be "a finished product," and in fact may be a poster you have already presented. We do require all HST doctoral students to present at least once during their tenure in HST. All HST certificate students are encouraged to present.

Martha L. Gray Prize
