It is convened over a full-day on a Saturday in the Fall semester at a site on or near the Gainesville UF campus. The  agenda includes social time for networking, a progress report from the MD-PhD Directorate, and a session in which all Scholars (GS2-GS4, plus MS3-MS4) present a poster describing their work.

Spring Symposium

The GS2 Scholars organize the Spring Symposium as a celebration of MD-PhD Research open to the UF HSC community. It is held in the Spring at a venue on the Gainesville UF HSC campus.
