COGNITIO is the annual undergraduate research symposium of Christian Medical College, Vellore. Started in 2013 as a student initiative by the budding medicos of CMC with an aim to promote undergraduate research, COGNITIO serves as a unique platform for medical students from across the nation to showcase their research work. Since its inception, COGNITIO has been a part of PEGASUS, the annual intercollegiate fest of CMC Vellore.
Over the years, we have collaborated with organisations such as the South Asian Cochrane Network, British Medical Journal and Wellcome Trust Research Laboratory to provide an enthralling as well as educational experience to the delegates of the event. Pioneers in the field of medical research from India and abroad have come and shared their valuable experiences to influence the minds of aspiring doctors to take up research right from the undergraduate level.
We, the students of CMC Vellore, believe that medical research has a vital significance in improving the standards of healthcare in India and promoting research from the roots would play a key role in expediting the process.
Over the past five years, pioneers in the field of medical research have come and addressed the delegates at COGNITIO. This year too, we are planning to keep up the tradition and have invited famous personalities. The list of the keynote speakers shall be updated soon!
A first among undergraduate medical conferences, this initiative by CMC Vellore is designed to acknowledge the fact that while not everyone
may have access to the tools needed to perform cutting-edge research, the burgeoning of new ideas and methods to answer a research question
are equally admirable. Remember that you became a researcher the minute you thought of a question that you would like answered. We hope that
Ideabox will help you put your attempts to paper.
COGNITIO invites all medical students in their second or third (pre-final) year to present interesting clinical cases pertinent to
Internal Medicine or General Surgery that display significant educational value.
