This event is free to healthcare providers.

Our guest presenters include five internationally recognized physicians with extensive experience in writing and publishing research. These remarkable individuals will present a series of lectures that will assist anyone, ranging from a novice researcher to an experienced researcher, in improving their approach to research and writing for publications.

The day will showcase research from HCA Healthcare's Continental, Mid-America, and Mountain Division residency programs in both poster and podium presentations. The residents worked diligently on their research to prepare for this special day. There will be an array of informative topics across many specialties.

Following the conclusion of the conference, tickets are available for a fundraiser supporting the Novick Cardiac Alliance, an organization that works with leaders and healthcare personnel around the world to create sustainable cardiac and general healthcare for children.
