Among them was internal medicine resident Fergie Ramos Taurez, M.D., who won first place in the clinical vignette category for her project “No Biopsy, No Problem: Using Skeletal Scintigraphy Scans in the Diagnosis of Cardiac Amyloidosis.”

The students who presented at the symposium are part of the four-year M.D./M.P.H. track offered at the Miller School of Medicine Regional Medical Campus, and the residents represented the University of Miami internal medicine and surgery residency training programs at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis. They were joined by students and residents from several other medical institutions, including Florida Atlantic University, Nova Southeastern University, and the Palm Beach County Health Department.

“The symposium represents many of the medical education programs in our community,” said Gauri Agarwal, M.D., Associate Regional Dean for Medical Curriculum. “It’s an event that exhibits our community’s collaborative efforts in scientific discovery and allows us to learn from significant cases that will improve care for our patients.”

Named after James J. Byrnes, a former family medicine clerkship director at the University of Miami, the symposium is part of the society’s annual Future of Medicine Summit and offers students, residents, fellows and other physician scholars an opportunity to share significant research and interesting clinical vignettes. The symposium is coordinated by Agarwal and Tulisa LaRocca, M.D.
