Student Poster Contest

The deadline for the 2022 Poster Contest has passed. We will begin accepting applications for the 2023 Poster Contest in March 2023. 

The ACOI is pleased to announce the 2022 awards for Original Research Abstract and Case Presentation Posters prepared by students interested in internal medicine and its subspecialties.

Cash awards of $500 will be made for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place original research abstract posters as judged at the 2022 Convention, October 19 - 22, 2022. Registration for the Convention is free for students. Those attending in person will be able to attend all ACOI meal functions at no extra cost. ACOI offers each COM’s internal medicine club $1,000 to help defray travel costs for students who attend in person. Maximum reimbursement per club is $1,000.

Abstract subjects are to be related to internal medicine and its subspecialties. There are no restrictions as to content, and the entry may represent, but is not limited to: original research, a retrospective analysis, a prospective analysis, etc. Relevance or application to osteopathic principles and practice is encouraged.

A second category for competition will include an interesting case(s) analyzed against a review of the literature to support and/or refute the analysis. There will be separate cash awards of $250 for the top three case presentation posters.

We strongly encourage you to enter this contest. This is a great way to begin disseminating your findings as well as an excellent addition to your CV by displaying your research at a national conference. Along with the judging, a first-rate convention is planned, including sessions designed especially for students!
