During Dean’s Day—Pitt Public Health’s annual student research competition since 1999—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 scores are tabulated, Dean Burke invites the winners to give oral presentations of their work during an awards ceremony.
To compete, students must prepare and 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 master’s and doctoral winners.
The 21st Annual Dean's Day poster sessions will be held in the Commons Area (1st floor). There will be daily sessions on April 3rd, 4th and 5th, from 9:00 - 11:00am and 1:30 - 3:30pm.
The Awards Ceremony and Oral Presentations will be held on April 16th stay tuned for the time and location.
