Dean's Day

annual student poster competition

During Dean's Day, students present their research during multiple poster sessions. Faculty members judge presentations for prizes, students evaluate posters for Grand Rounds credit, and the Pitt Public Health community learns about our students' research. After the poster sessions, Dean Burke invites the winners to give oral presentations of their work during the awards ceremony. This competitive research competition is open to graduate students in other disciplines.

To compete, students must submit an abstract. All students who submit abstracts give poster presentations. All currently matriculated Pitt Public Health students are eligible to compete, with the exception of the previous year’s first place winner.
