Last year, the editorial staff at MSRJ invited medical students to enter our submission contest. This contest was open to any medical student author who submitted during the contest dates. Authors had the chance to win a $300 scholarship in each of the following categories: Best Original Research, Best Review, Best Reflection, and Best Case Report. The response we received to this call was overwhelming. Our submission rate greatly increased during this contest time with amazing articles from around the globe. Throughout the year, our staff tirelessly reviewed these articles and after much deliberation, we are very pleased to announce the winners of this contest! Listed below are our winners in each category including a short biography of the research team.
MSRJ – Volume 3 – Spring 2014
MSRJ editors and staff recently attended the Pediatrics Research Day in East Lansing, Michigan on March 19, 2014. This event was sponsored by Michigan State University Department of Pediatrics and Human Development and the Wayne State University Department of Pediatrics, DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
There were 60 poster presentations and 6 oral presentations by undergraduates, medical students, and pediatric residents during the event. Included in these poster presentations was one by our very own senior editors, Kailyne Van Stavern and Michelle Dwyer along with several of their colleagues. Their faculty advisor, Jonathon Gold, M.D., is also a faculty reviewer for the Medical Student Research Journal. They presented their research regarding screen time in pediatric patients and how it relates to their development, an important topic in this day’s technological world. This poster won one of five “Poster of Distinction” awards out of all the present undergraduates, medical students, and residents. We at the MSRJ are very proud of our staff members for this honor and their continual dedication to research.
