Annual Research Day

Our main department forum reflecting our research profile is our Annual Research Day and the Henderson Lecture. Research Day is an opportunity for trainees (medical students, residents, graduate students, fellows, and post-doctoral fellows) to present their research, whether in progress or completed, to the rest of the department. Each year the program includes oral and poster presentations by trainees. Also included in the program is the Henderson Lecture, presented by a senior figure in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, with topics ranging from pre-eclampsia to ethics in medicine. Trainees are judged on their presentations and the JW Knox Ritchie Research Awards are presented for best abstract/presentation by trainee category (view criteria). 

About Research Day

Research Day is an annual event within our department that showcases research projects from our trainees in both oral and poster presentations. Topics will cover a range of subjects within the Obstetric and Gynaecology field, and will be presented by over 100 trainees! This is a great way to support our trainees, as well as learn more about current research in your field.

Research Day 2022

This year's Research Day will no longer be in-person due to the impact of the current wave of covid-19 on the labour and delivery wards across the city. A virtual event will take place via Zoom on May 6, 2022.
