Annual Research Day of JIPMER
The purpose of the JIPMER Research Day celebrations is twofold, i.e. (i) to promote research culture; and (ii) to create awareness about the latest research advances in various fields among our faculty members, and PhD, postgraduate and undergraduate students. Usually, it is celebrated over a three-day period annually. On day one, research Paper Presentation (oral/poster) by faculty, residents, Ph.D. Scholars, MPH/ MSc trainees & UG students are held in different halls spread across the campus. On day two, there are Capacity Building Workshops in various fields of research for research capacity building amongst faculty and PhD, postgraduate and undergraduate students. This is the main highlight of the Research Day Celebrations every year. On day three, there is a valedictory function, which kicks off with a debate/viewpoint by PhD scholars and residents on research aptitude: expectation and reality. Then there are interview with doctor entrepreneurs and innovators in medical research or a Quiz conducted in topics related to research methodology, scientific writing and research ethics. This is followed by the Senior Faculty Research Oration, given by a Senior Faculty who has done path breaking research in the institute. This is followed by a Key Note Address, delivered by a highly accomplished luminary or scientist, whose talk will go a long way to inspire our students, residents and faculty, and thus fulfill the purpose for which the Research Day is designed. This is followed by the department highlights and research plans. Research day celebrations traditionally end with the prize distribution, followed by valedictory function.
The sixth JIPMER Research Day celebration was conducted on 18-20 March 2021.
