RMC | Mentorship Dinner



Rawalian Students’ Research Society’s vision is to enable research and development excellence in Rawalpindi Medical University in order to achieve an evidence-based approach among our students.  Accordingly, our mission is to advance knowledge and education by providing opportunities for original, competitively-selected research and development at all levels and across all disciplines of health sciences. In our endeavor to make research accessible and possible for our students, Rawalian Students’ Research Society annually conducts the Undergraduate Research Competition RECON.

In RECON 2016 and Young Researchers’ Forum (YRF) 2017, 40 and 71 Research Projects were presented by Undergraduates of RMU. This year RSRS plans to invite Medical Students from other Institutions of Pakistan as well to make it a National Competition. It is the first step towards development of collaboration and communication between Medical Students of the whole Country for promotion of Undergraduate Research in Pakistan.
RECON’18 is a natural extension of the RSRS mission to encourage, support, facilitate and centralize medical student research throughout their MBBS time. The program brings to life RSRS’s commitment to foster in our students a passion for enquiry, discovery and investigative research. Participation provides students with invaluable experience in the area of investigative medical science, and is consistent with RSRS’s ambition to produce not just exceptional healthcare practitioners, but also life-long learners and topnotch medical researchers. This year we have invited institutes from all over Pakistan and arranged a panel of faculty judges to select winning projects based on the originality, scientific merit and contribution to the world of health sciences. Looking forward to seeing you all there on 11th August 2018.
