UPMC Central PA Region Annual Medical Education Day 2022
Welcome to Medical Education Day 2022!
We would like to thank all of those individuals who submitted abstracts for this year's program. We appreciate the time and effort you put into preparing your abstracts, presentations or posters.
This program is made possible by the generous financial support of the CGOH Foundation and the UPMC Pinnacle Medical Staff.
In addition, we'd like to thank the family of the late Dr. Loucas Tzanis for their generous support. With Dr. Tzanis' passing in 2004, his wife, Helen, established an annual award to recognize an internal medicine resident who has excelled in bedside practice, as nominated by the nursing staff. In 2020, to further recognize Dr. Tzanis' legacy, Helen, her son Evan and daughter in-law, Nia, expanded the program to recognize distinction in research by providing for financial awards to the top oral and poster presentations in the medical track at Medical Education Day. The UPMC Pinnacle Foundation's Dr. Thomas Outland Education Fund provides for the awards for the top oral and poster presentations for the surgical track.
We have organized the morning program into simultaneous presentations of medical and surgical tracks to provide areas of interest for all attendees. At the conclusion of the morning lectures, please join us for the awards ceremony and a keynote address by Gloria Goins, who will present "When Good Isn't Good Enough: How Unconscious Bias Harms Patients ... Despite Our Good Intentions."
We hope that you will find this program informative and enjoyable.
Our local/regional Medical Staff Providers (MD/DO/RN/APPs) and our Graduate Medical Educations Residency Program trainees, Program Directors and teaching faculty.
The Medical Education Day allows clinical research and scholarly activity opportunities to be presented to our local and regional clinical care providers and GME Training Programs.
