Poster Session Eligibility

Anyone at the Feinberg School of Medicine or its affiliates who fits within one of the following categories is invited to submit an abstract for poster presentation:

  • Faculty
  • Clinical residents and fellows
  • Postdoctoral researchers and fellows
  • MD-PhD (medical scientist) students
  • Medical students
  • Graduate students
  • Undergraduate students
  • Research staff

Posters presented at national meetings or other venues are eligible for submission, provided the research was conducted at Feinberg or one of its affiliates.

Please note, non-faculty categories of presenters must have a faculty PI sponsor as a co-author on the poster.

Only one poster may be submitted per participant.


Research Day participants must have met the eligibility requirements and submitted their abstracts by 11:59 p.m., March 8, 2019. As in years past, participation in the poster competition is limited by space. Poster competition spots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. While only posters with an assigned number will be judged, all completed abstracts submitted before the deadline will be displayed online.
