Poster Competition

We invite medical students, residents and fellows to submit a poster for our Utah ACP Poster Competition! Your poster can detail an interesting patient case or your research/quality improvement work related to topics in Internal Medicine. All submitted posters will be presented during our ACP Chapter Meeting May 5, 2022.

Judges will select 2 semi-finalists winners from both poster categories – Clinical and Research – who will receive a cash prize. If you are scheduled for a clinical rotation during the competition, there may be coverage available to allow you to present. The grand prize winner (selected out of the 4 semi-finalists) will present their work at ACP 2023 in San Diego, CA, and receive $600 towards travel expenses and free attendance at the meeting. You will categorize your poster among the following categories: Clinical Vignette or Research (Clinical, Basic Science or Quality Improvement/Patient Safety). 

Poster submissions for the Spring 2022 meeting will be accepted from now through Friday, April 8, 2022 at midnight. Poster formatting details can be found in the attached word document as well as an example poster template.  


Do I submit an abstract or a poster?

For our Spring poster competition, please submit a Power Point file of your completed poster to Please note this is a poster competition, in contrast to our fall competition for written abstract submissions. 

Who can submit a poster?

Any Utah medical student, interns (categorical Internal Medicine, preliminary or transitional year), Internal Medicine resident (also open to preliminary or transitional year interns) or fellow within an Internal Medicine specialty can submit a case.

What if I cannot attend the poster competition?

Every effort will be made to arrange for coverage if you have conflicting clinical duties. All finalists must be present for the poster competition. 

What is expected of finalists?

Finalists will be expected to give a brief oral presentation of their posters for judges during the ACP Poster Competition on Thursday, March 3rd from 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM. 

When will I find out if I am a finalist?

You will be notified once preliminary judging is complete, by Feb 28th, 2022.

Can I submit my poster if it has been presented elsewhere?

You can submit work that has been (or planned to be) presented elsewhere but presentation at ACP may jeopardize presentation before another society. Posters previously submitted to an ACP poster competition (local or national) are ineligible. Posters based upon work that has been published as a full paper are not eligible.
