About Resident Research Day

The William E. Booth Research Day, which began in 2012, provides a supportive forum for residents from all seven MSM residency programs to present their research activities on a competitive basis. This event is named in honor of William E. Booth, MSM’s first Director of Graduate Medical Education and a strong advocate for resident education.


The objectives of this event are to:

• Allow participants to gain experience in research presentation.
• Recognize outstanding research by residents.
• Create awareness about resident activities at MSM.


Participation in the William E. Booth Resident Research Day promotes scholarly activity and engagement, strengthens graduate medical education, and advances research in the clinical and health sciences.
