MedTrack® Seniors Present Scientific Research Articles

December 5th, 2022 | News, News 2022

MedTrack® seniors presented scientific research articles at Padua’s Honors Advanced Science Seminar Conference. The purpose of the HASS capstone class is to help students become critical consumers of healthcare information. These presentations represent a step in that learning process, requiring students to study a published scientific article in-depth. Students will apply this knowledge as they work in groups next semester to design and defend their own scientific research proposals. Special thanks to Dr. Jose Vega ’10, a Cleveland Clinic orthopedic surgery resident, for delivering the conference’s keynote address and for families and friends who shared in this milestone.
