The winners of the competition will be eligible to enter the National Poster Competitions in April 2022 at the ACP Internal Medicine Meeting – Chicago, Ill., or at the SHM Annual Conference in Nashville, Tenn.

This competition offers an exciting opportunity for medical students and residents to present research and case reports at a prestigious event and to gain recognition from peers and internal medicine leaders. Abstracts/posters can focus on any of the following categories: clinical vignette, research paper, and quality improvement/patient safety.

The virtual poster competition will be Thursday, Oct. 7, 2021, in the afternoon via Zoom. The deadline for abstracts is September 17, 2021.

Abstracts have a 450 word limit, excluding the title. See ACP guidelines for abstracts.

If your abstract is accepted it is easy to create a virtual poster. SMHS Medical Media has e-poster templates available.
