The ACOI is pleased to announce the 2017 awards for Research Abstract Posters prepared by residents, fellows and students in internal medicine and its subspecialties.
Cash awards of $1,500, $1,000, and $500 will be made for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place posters as judged at the 2017 Convention, October 11-15, in Washington, DC. In addition, the top three finishers will present their work at a plenary session of the Convention and receive reimbursement of their travel costs (1-2 nights at hotel and coach air travel), if not paid by your program.
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.
A second category for competition will include an interesting case or several cases analyzed with a review of the literature and supporting or refuting contemporary attitudes in literature. There will be separate cash awards of $500, $250 and $100 for the top three case presentations. Unfortunately, funding constraints do not allow reimbursement for travel for the top three finishers in the competition.
We strongly encourage all osteopathic residents, fellows and students to enter this contest. In addition to the judging in Baltimore, a first-rate convention is planned.
