Symposium Guest Speakers / Judges

Invited lecturers open the symposium with a lecture on a topic of their choice. They remain in attendance for each of the platform presentations during the morning session and also view each of the poster presentations during the afternoon session.

Each of the adult neurology residents and fellows, as well as the child neurology residents, may choose to present a poster or may elect to present a 10 minute Power Point presentation followed by a five minute discussion. The presentation or poster may involve basic research, clinical research, or a description of an interesting patient with a review of the literature.

At the conclusion of all presentations, the invited lecturer serves as judge and determines the winner in each of four categories, PGY-II, PGY-III, PGY-IV and Fellows. Winners receive an award for their efforts and all are celebrated at the Residency Graduation Banquet held later the same day in a Chicago venue. The invited lecturer attends the banquet as our honored guest and along with our Department Chairman, Christopher M. Gomez MD PhD, presents a certificate to each of the four winners.
