General Information

Every year the HRS Graduate Student Society organizes a research conference for its HRS students. This year's conference presentations will be taking place on February 1st, 2023. This year’s conference will be held in person on campus, and we are very excited to welcome everyone back after being virtual for the past two years. The purpose of the conference is to give students the opportunity to practice their presentation skills and receive feedback on their research from judges, regardless of the stage of their research. We are currently accepting abstracts for our 2023 conference. 

The theme for this year’s conference is Re-Evaluating Experiences in Rehabilitation. Recently, there has been an ongoing shift within healthcare research towards incorporating patients’ voices and acknowledging their subjective experiences as valuable members of research teams. We want to highlight the diversity and breadth of projects within HRS that are contributing to redefining the experiences of patients within rehabilitation.
