Medical students share research at American Academy of Pediatrics meeting

Three third-year students in Penn State College of Medicine’s MD program presented their work at the 2019 American Academy of Pediatrics national meeting.

Each medical student at the College of Medicine completes a project through the Medical Student Research (MSR) program. Students Megan Crenshaw, Melanie Patterson and Michael Girgis presented their MSR projects during the meeting, held in October 2019 in New Orleans.

Crenshaw’s project was “The value of musculoskeletal CME for pediatricians.” Patterson’s was “A time motion study in the pediatric orthopaedic clinic.” Girgis presented “The diagnosis and outcomes of pediatric trigger thumb.”

More than 18,000 pediatric doctors from the United States and other countries attended the meeting.
