Student Poster Day
Friday, April 25, 2014
The 23rd Annual Student Poster Day at the School of Public Health will be held on Friday, April 25th from 10:00am to 1:30pm in the lobby of the Cancer Research Center, East Campus.
Student Poster Day is an opportunity for students to present on their graduate research projects or their required internships, which are an integral part of their academic experience at the School of Public Health. Both internships and the collaborative research between students and faculty exemplify the School of Public Health's commitment to practice-based research and education.
MPH students planning to graduate in May are required to present a poster at Student Poster Day to satisfy their internship requirement. Questions regarding completion of this internship requirement should be directed to Katrina Chamberlain, Director of Internships and Career Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students in other degree programs, such as MS, PhD, and DrPH, should check with their respective departments to determine whether or not they are required to participate in Student Poster Day.
Student posters will be reviewed by faculty judges for Excellence in Research and Honorable Mention awards.
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING ABSTRACTS IS MONDAY, March 24, 2014 at 5:00 PM to email@example.com. All students must use the Abstract Submission Form provided below. Please note that the maximum word count for all abstracts is 250 words. Please follow the formatting as shown in the sample abstract. Abstracts not formatted correctly will be returned to the student for correction. If the corrections are not made in a timely manner, the abstract may not be included in the Abstract Booklet and the student will not be eligible for consideration for an Excellence in Research Award.
