Medical students show off work at Carilion Clinic’s Research Day

ROANOKE, Va. – Carilion Clinic is celebrating Research Day — a chance for medical students from all the schools associated with the hospital to show off their work.

Researchers from the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC and Radford University Carilion presented their findings at the event.

Research is becoming a key part of medical education, as students work to prove they understand important concepts.

Carilion has fostered a community of researchers in the Roanoke Valley, and events like this ensure the hospital remains a pioneer in medical exploration.

”It’s been a great learning process for me to learn what research is like, this whole process of coming up with the study and making a poster about it, and I also do a lot of teaching and sharing that with the community,” Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine student Brianna Chang said.

The event is completely funded by Carilion Clinic.
