The popular saying ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ is fitting when it comes to Paul L. Foster School of Medicine students presenting research to fulfill their requirements under the Scholarly Activity and Research Program, or SARP.
The ‘village’ of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso faculty mentors and judges along with 64 second, third and fourth-year medical students came together last week for a valuable learning experience during SARP oral and poster presentations.
Each medical student had 10 minutes to present his or her research project and was judged on appearance, content, presentation and communication style. Four overall winners were selected for a $1,200 travel award to attend a national-level meeting or conference. SARP began five years ago with the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine inaugural class.
