The Office of Advancement is hosting its annual UofTMed Student Showcase on April 1, 2020 at Hart House, and we are looking for exciting projects by Faculty of Medicine students and trainees (undergraduate, PhD candidates, Masters’, Fellows, and Residents). This event invites valued donors to come to campus to experience the breadth of innovative, interactive research projects taking place across the Faculty.

Exhibitors have the chance to win a $750 prize and a private lunch with Interim Dean Salvatore Spadafora. Two runners-up will be selected to each win a prize of $200. Please review the criteria below to determine your eligibility.
