Poster Competition

Poster Competition

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.

There are 3 categories: Biomedical/Clinical Research, Social/Behavioral Medicine/Medical Education and Case Reports. Cash prizes will be awarded in each of the three categories.

To learn more about the requirements for entering the 2024 event, see the Annual Regional Osteopathic Poster Competition and Exhibition flyer.

Abstracts must be submitted online at 2024 Ohio Osteopathic Symposium Abstract Submission Form
