The UCLA Department of Medicine Solomon Scholars Research Day was established in June 1981 in honor of David H. Solomon, MD, Executive Chair of the Department of Medicine from 1971 to 1981, upon his retirement.

As Executive Chairman of the Department of Medicine, Dr. Solomon strongly supported career development in research. The Solomon Scholars program was founded to help introduce resident physicians from all UCLA-affiliated internal medicine programs to careers in research and education, to encourage research and scholarship by resident physicians, and to facilitate exchange among investigators.

Dr. Solomon passed away in 2013; since 1981, the program has continued as a memoriam to his career at UCLA but was paused during the COVID-19 pandemic (2020 - 2022). The UCLA Solomon Scholars program is a fitting tribute to Dr. Solomon and the UCLA Department of Medicine is thrilled to host the 38th Annual Solomon Scholars Research Day on May 30, 2023.

2023 Solomon Scholars Research Day

Solomon Scholars Research Day is designed to highlight resident physician scholarship, including original research (bench, clinical, translational, or health services); clinical vignettes; quality improvement; and medical education innovation. The program will include a poster session and oral presentations (one resident from each residency program will be selected to give an oral presentation). Submitted abstracts will be published in a special edition of the Proceedings of UCLA Health. All participants are eligible for raffle prizes. We encourage all residents to participate!

To participate, please complete an abstract form and mentor acknowledgement form, and submit here by April 17, 2023.
