Poster Guidelines

The Department of Medicine has arranged for poster printing again this year, FREE OF CHARGE to you and your division. Existing posters from a previous national meeting will be accepted pending size determination. Please email with the existing poster dimensions for confirmation that it will be acceptable.


We have provided starter templates for your use in preparing a poster. The page layout dimensions are 18″ high x 31″ wide. The final display poster will be 36″ high x 62″ wide. The final PDF will be printed at 200%, so high-resolution figures/graphs are optimal. You are encouraged to have your mentor provide a final review prior to submitting it for printing as no printer’s proof will be provided.

Utilization of these templates is not required. However, if you are participating in the free poster printing, you need to adhere to the layout requirements as stated above.

Poster PDF Deadline

Regardless of the printing option, a PDF file is required for all posters. Poster PDF files are due on April 15th, and need to be sent to PDFs of the posters will be made available for the judges prior to the poster viewing sessions.
