KTGF Games to KTGF National Medical Student Conference
In 2006, the tradition of the annual KTGF Games was launched, attracting about 50 medical students and mentors from five sites across the country. The Games served as an opportunity for medical students from participating schools to come together, network, present their research and clinical projects, and engage in fun competition. Beginning in 2015, the KTGF Games were renamed the KTGF National Medical Student Conference (NMSC) to emphasize the scientific content. The KTGF National Medical Student Conference has grown to attract over 120 participants from MSPs across the country.
Participating MSPs volunteer to host the following year’s national conference, ensuring rotation of the conference across the country.
Programming at the NMSC includes, but is not limited to:
- Welcome reception or dinner
- Keynote lecture by a senior child and adolescent psychiatrist (s)
- Medical student oral presentations
- Medical student poster sessions
- Networking and mentorship lunch
- Team building games
The 2021 KTGF National Medical Student Conference was hosted by the University of Iowa and held virtually on February 26-27, 2021. The 2022 conference will be held at University of California, Davis in Davis, California in February 2022.
