NATIONAL AND REGIONAL ABSTRACT PRESENTATIONS

 

 

Residents are encouraged to submit their abstract to national and regional conferences for poster and oral presentations.  Each year many residents participate in various core internal medicine and subspecialty national conferences across the country and internationally.  Residents are provided funding towards airfare, flight, accommodations.  UCSF Fresno is located in the central valley and offers a vast array of pathology, which provides a great resource for case reports.  Research involving retrospective cross sectional analysis and clinical trials are available at UCSF Fresno which provide resources for abstract submissions.
