Dean's Day 2021 was a success!

Thank you for participating in our virtual Dean's Day program! Check back soon for our award announcement. 

April 5-7, 2021

Since 1999, Dean’s Day—Pitt Public Health’s annual showcase of student research—has hosted poster sessions during which students present their work to a multidisciplinary audience. Faculty members judge presentations, students evaluate posters for Grand Rounds credit, and the Pitt Public Health community learns about the research our students are conducting.

To participate, students must prepare and submit an abstract. All students who submit abstracts give poster presentations. All currently matriculated Pitt Public Health students are eligible to compete, with the exception of the previous year’s first place master’s and doctoral winners.
