The Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine was occupied with more than 100 resident physicians, medical students, faculty and staff during the first Research & Educational Symposium, a collaboration of five hospital sites with approximately 20 faculty members working to provide a collaborative effort to improve patient care.
This year’s event welcomed several Campbell Medicine Alumni, such as Rachel Dellehunt (’17 DO) and Matt Walker (’17 DO) with Cape Fear Valley Health; Christopher Benton (’17 DO) with Southeastern Health and others who presented case presentations that discussed cases and treatment techniques they may employ in their clinical setting.
“This is an opportunity for Campbell Medicine to provide development of scholarly activity, and a way to highlight the excellent training our residents receive through the programs,” said Dr. Robin King-Thiele, associate dean for postgraduate affairs. “We’re also so grateful for the support of our clinical hospital sites and the Department of Simulation Medicine to make this event successful.”
This is the largest research symposium that the School of Medicine has hosted to date. Visit Campbell Medicine’s Graduate Medical Education page to learn more about the residency programs.
