Academic Medicine Career Development Conference 1,2,3
The Academic Medicine Career Development Conference is a biennial conference designed to introduce students to careers in academic medicine. The goal of this conference is for diverse medical trainees (including students, residents and fellows) to increase their awareness, interest and preparedness for an academic medicine career. The Academic Medicine Career Development Conference is free and open to all medical students, residents and fellows but has been specifically tailored for groups underrepresented in medicine (i.e., LGBTQ, racial and ethnic minorities and women).

Presenting research is important for the academic and professional development of medical/graduate students, residents and fellows.
