GREAT is an acronym for Graduate Research Education and Technology Symposium. For the past 40 years, students at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center have showcased their original research at the GREAT Symposium. Students and postdoctoral fellows compete for travel grants to present their research at national scientific meetings.
All current Graduate College students and those graduating in the 2014-15 academic year are eligible to partipate. In order to redeem GREAT travel award winnings, individuals who have graduated must present proof that they will be presenting the research conducted while a student at the OUHSC and not previously presented at GREAT. Graduates in a postdoctoral position must participate in the postdoctoral fellow competition.
The 2015 symposium hosts three Pre-GREAT Workshops, oral and poster presentations, and vendor show. The symposium also hosts a career development workshop and a keynote address.
All students are encouraged to present a 10-minute oral and/or poster presentation. If you would like to assistant with organization or volunteer at the symposium, contact Chandra Kroll (Chandra-Kroll@ouhsc.edu).
