Poster Presentations

LBORC Research Poster Presentations

The Research Poster Presentation, sponsored by the Louisa Burns Osteopathic Research Committee and the National Undergraduate Fellows Association, is open to osteopathic medical students, interns and residents. The primary author of each poster must be a member of the AAO or the Student American Academy of Osteopathy. The LBORC has established three categories for posters: clinical research, single case study, and education and public health.

Posters are presented at the AAO's annual Convocation, and presenters are required to register for the event.

This poster presentation motivates presenters to refine analytical thinking and presentation skills that will benefit them as they continue to pursue research. In addition, they will receive constructive feedback on their posters and presentations from the judges, and they can network with active researchers.

Information about the 2019 presentation will be released in the fall. In the meantime, you can read about the 201820172016 and 2015 winners online.
