All members of the IAFP, including active, resident, & student members, are eligible to submit one abstract in each category (see below) for consideration.

Selected abstracts will be invited to participate in the competition and present either by an oral presentation with PowerPoint slides or by submission of a poster.

A limited number of oral presentations will be allotted 10 – 15 minute time slots (15 for original research and 10 for cases) including a short question and answer session. There will be time allotted for poster viewing and discussion.

At the end of the day cash prizes are awarded to resident, student, and active members (FM faculty are not eligible for cash prizes but are eligible to win awards in special faculty category).
