MAG to host medical student abstract competition

The Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) will host a medical student abstract competition for MAG member students in conjunction with its 2019 House of Delegates meeting – an event that will take place at the Evergreen Marriott Stone Mountain Resort on Saturday, October 19. 

The competition will have four categories, including basic science/bench work, clinical research, public health, and case studies. Just one winner will be selected in each category, and the winning abstracts will be published in the Journal of the Medical Association of Georgia. Every student will also be given the opportunity to participate in a 'Best Pitch Competition,' where they will have 45 seconds to “pitch” a panel of physician judges. The winner of this competition will be featured on MAG’s website.
