Graduate Medical Education students presented their Pacific Regional Medical Command (PRMC) Research projects to PRMC staff and their peers during a Research Symposium at Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) on May 21, 2014.

Approximately 200 personnel were in attendance during the Bass Research Symposium where 50 presentations were delivered which included eight oral presentations, 12 Health Care Outcomes posters, and 20 Case Report posters.

"All of the graduate medical education programs require some level of research and this is a great venue for them to present their hard work," stated Lt. Col. William Latzka, Research Symposium Officer in Charge (OIC) for Tripler Army Medical Center.

Latzka says that projects students present help to provide the foundation for advancing healthcare as well as produce research that may improve long term healthcare.

TAMC's physicians and scientists publish 130 manuscripts a year advancing Army medicine and supports the graduate medical education.
