Med students from OUWB rack up awards from American College of Physicians
Four medical students from Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine were recognized for poster presentations during the recent annual meeting of the American College of Physicians’ Michigan chapter.
ACP is a national organization of internists, the largest medical-specialty organization, and the second-largest physician group in the U.S. Its 161,000 members include internists, internal medicine subspecialists, medical students, residents, and fellows. The group acts locally through its chapters.
The Michigan chapter held its annual scientific meeting Oct. 14-17. The event featured networking opportunities and guest speakers, along with abstract competitions for residents and medical students. A total of 51 posters were presented by medical students via pre-recorded videos.
OUWB students Hassan Akram, M4, Faris Alkhouri, M2, Ryan Ko, M2, and Tiffany Loh, M2, were among the more than 50 medical students to present posters. The four presenters from OUWB each earned at least one award, with Loh getting two.
“It feels really good and surprising,” said Loh. “(Participants) have to be accepted to even enter the competition…I was just glad to be accepted.”
