In addition to hosting conferences, RAP students are presenters at local, regional, and even some national conferences. Research associates are encouraged to submit abstracts to conferences and speak to large audiences of distinguished doctors and researchers. Some students even participated in more than one of these poster presentations. Most notably, every year, CTSI-RAP members attend and present at UCLA’s Undergraduate Research Week (URW). For 2022, despite the challenges with the pandemic, RAP still showcased 6 different presentations. In addition to URW, 2022 featured attendance to 2 national conferences by RAP members: Society of General Internal Medicine in Lake Buena Vista, Florida and Academy Health Research Conference in Washington DC.
