Sager Day 2021

The Residency Programs at Michigan Medicine and St. Joseph Mercy Health System are committed to ensuring that trainees have the opportunity to learn and engage meaningfully in research during their training.

Sager Day is uniquely focused on supporting the professional growth and development of Residents conducting human subjects or basic science research through the dissemination of research findings and peer recognition. With the guidance of their faculty mentors, trainees have developed their own research proposals and built their critical thinking, experimental design and analysis, and science communication skills. Presentation at Sager Day represents the culmination of a trainee's research milestones and reflects preparedness for long-term academic success.
