Scientific Research Exhibit Competition

The Michigan Osteopathic Association hosts a Scientific Research Exhibit (SRE) at both the Spring and Autumn Conventions. These competitions provide osteopathic medical students, residents, fellows and attending level physicians an opportunity to present their medical and scientific research to our profession. The SRE event demonstrates the very best of what osteopathic medicine is and reaffirms the profession’s commitment to the advancement of science in osteopathic medicine.
