About HPD Research Day

The Health Professions Research Division is excited to announce the seventh Nova Southeastern University's Health Professions Division Research Day (HPD Research Day), which will take place on Friday, February 21, 2020.

A consortium of eight academic colleges—Allopathic Medicine, Dental Medicine, Health Care Sciences, Medical Sciences, Nursing, Optometry, Osteopathic Medicine, and Pharmacy—have banded together to offer poster displays and oral presentations of their current cutting-edge research. We anticipate more than 130 oral and poster presentations and over 3,000 students, faculty, and guests to participate.

Adding to the festivities will be a judging and presentation of awards for outstanding research. This event promises to be more than a day-long celebration of research and scholarly activities. It is also an opportunity for students and faculty from multiple disciplines to interact with each other and with the larger research community. 

HPD Research Day is the premier, student-participated academic research event in Florida. For additional information, see the buttons in the feature box on the left.
