Poster Competition

Virtual Poster Presentation

An essential aspect of any research project is dissemination of the findings arising from the study. The most common ways to make others aware of your work is by publishing the results in a journal article, or by completing a poster presentation, most often to be displayed at a national or regional meeting -- like the Symposium.

The Osteopathic Poster Exhibition and Competition is held annually during the Symposium. What started in 2003 as a statewide contest has grown into a regional competition with entries from 11 states and cash prizes of $3,000. See a list of Poster winners on the OOA website.

The 2021 event will be held virtually.

It is structured very differently from prior competitions so please review the guidelines and process carefully prior to submitting an abstract. For example, there is only one category: biomedical/clinical research. There are cash prizes for the top three projects.

To learn more about the requirements for entering the 2021 event, see the Annual Regional Osteopathic Poster Competition and Exhibition flyer and download the FAQ.

Abstracts must be submitted online at 2021 Ohio Osteopathic Symposium Abstract Submission Form
