The Missouri Chapter of the ACP will have its annual Residents Poster Contest virtually for 2020. We have room for 90 Resident posters. All posters must be internal medicine specific and presenters must be Missouri ACP members.
All entries must be submitted through your Residency Program Director. If you are interested, please speak with your Program Director. Individual submissions are not accepted. Submissions not focused on Internal Medicine or IM subspecialty will not be accepted.
Changes for 2020: To allow more opportunity from all programs we have decided to adjust how we allocate posters to the annual meeting. Historically, the chapter could allow roughly 90 abstracts from the resident submissions and these were allocated based on the respective sizes of our Missouri Internal Medicine programs.
We are moving to a hybrid model where 80% of posters will be allocated in the traditional manner for each program to decide which abstracts to sponsor for the Chapter meeting. The other 20% will be available for at large entries and will go through a pre-judging of their abstracts by ACP member judges.
Programs will still use their own process to select abstracts for submission to the MO ACP competition. Additionally, we are asking for each program to submit up to 5 additional abstracts for consideration by the judge panel. See timeline below.
An additional update: In compliance with the National ACP changes to the poster competition, we will be moving forward with poster size reductions so that all posters are to be under 4'x4' (recommended 3.5' x 3.5'). We would also like to receive all posters in their final form by PDF.
Programs will submit their list of abstracts to fulfill allocation by August 1st, 2020.
Programs will submit up to an additional 5 abstracts for review by a judge panel at this same time.
Of these submissions, an additional 18 poster presenters will be selected to fill our poster allocations. These residents will be notified by August 17th, 2020.

Entries are only accepted from Clerkship Directors who will submit the school's allotted entries to the Missouri ACP Poster Contest. If you are interested, please speak with your Clerkship Director. Individual submissions not submitted by a Clerkship Director will not be accepted.
All poster presenters must be members of the Missouri Chapter of the ACP which means the member's mailing address needs to be in Missouri or the member has notified ACP of their wish to be a member of the Missouri Chapter with an out-of-state address. We will decline entries from non-members who may be ACP members in another state. Submissions not focused on Internal Medicine or IM subspecialty will not be accepted.
