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. This competitive research competition is now in its 20th year. 

After the poster sessions scores are tabulated, Dean Burke then invites the winners to give oral presentations of their work during the awards ceremony. 

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 master's and doctoral winners.

The Dean's Day poster sessions will take place April 5, 6, and 9, 2018.
