Winners of Resident/Medical Student Poster Competition Announced

Poster winners
The Resident/Medical Student Poster Competition is an APA Annual Meeting tradition that allows residents and medical students to attend the meeting, present their research, and be recognized for quality work. Eligible participants can submit abstracts for posters in five categories: Clinical Case Studies, Psychosocial and Biomedical Research Projects, Patient-Oriented Care and Epidemiology, Community Development and Service Projects, and Curriculum Development and Educational Projects. Submitted abstracts are evaluated by a panel of judges. All submitted posters are presented at the Annual Meeting, and winners receive a medal and bragging rights for themselves and their institutions.
