2022 Williams Student Conference Recap

The Williams Student Conference was held on Saturday, February 26 and was another informative event for all who attended and participated.  Our first in-person event in 2 years!  It was a wonderful day to see everyone from our poster participants, Student Dilemma, judges, and presenters.   We had over 60 students and 5 Faculty registered for this workshop.  It included a number of activities, with a research and clinical vignette poster competition (17 entries), IronMed competition (Dr. W. Rainey Johnson from WR), and presentations on How to be a Good Clinician by Dr. Sara Mixter, and 7 Habits of Highly Effective Intern by Dr. Sam Kant.  We also had two notable presentations, on the Intersectionality on Gender and Bullying by Madeleine Purcell, a 3rd year student and winner of the Mackowiak Student Award, and the Intersectionality of Medical Mentorship & Under-Represented Groups by Dr. Sono Khan, Chief Resident at UMMC/VA.

Thanks to all of our Faculty – Drs. Janaki Deepak, Colleen Christmas, Dobbin Chow, Richard Williams, George Lawrence, Sam Kant, Sara Mixter, Rainey Johnson, Sono Khan, and Madeleine Purcell.

We hope that you will take the time to look at the pictures which highlight this amazing event for our students.
