Due to the cancellation of the ACOFP 57th Annual Convention & Scientific Seminars and all related scheduled events for March 16–22 in New Orleans, this year’s Scientific Research and Clinically Academic Poster Presentation Competition was held virtually. Over 50 contestants submitted recorded presentations, instead of presenting in person, that a panel of judges scored based on criteria for original research and case reports.

The Poster Presentation competition is sponsored by ACOFP’s Osteopathic Clinical Research (OCR) Committee. Osteopathic medical students, family medicine residents and faculty members are encouraged to present their research during this special display of scientific posters.
