Research Week

The Department of Pediatrics’ Research Week is held each spring. Through a mix of live-streamed lectures, in-person events, and interactive sessions, members of the Department of Pediatrics and the entire University of Wisconsin–Madison community can learn the latest advances in pediatric research.

Activities for the week include small group sessions with faculty and trainees, fellow capstone presentations, the distinguished Gerard B. Odell Lecture, the Wald Faculty Research Forum and town hall, a keynote lecture, platform presentations, and an in-person poster session. The poster session includes a reception and features the research of residents, fellows, faculty, APPs, and staff in the department.

Continuing medical education (CME) credit is available.
