The MD/PhD Program held their 9th Annual Research Retreat on Wednesday, April 16th. Once again, the students in the program spearheaded the effort to organize and facilitate this event. It was a great success with attendees that included students, faculty, alumni and visiting guests.

Three of the graduating students, Bryan O’Sullivan-Murphy, Khanh-Van Tran and Jennifer Clark presented their graduate research along with several esteemed faculty researchers. Four of the program’s alumni returned to UMass to participate in roundtable discussions and the events culminated with a student research poster session, cocktail reception and dinner.

The visiting guests included seventeen accepted applicants taking time to revisit the program and learn more about why the UMass MD/PhD Program is a great place to continue their education.
