Clinical or educational scholarly activity completed in the past 2-3 years that is relevant to family medicine and has been conducted or performed by a FAFP family medicine resident, medical student or an FAFP physician member may qualify for submission to this program. We define “student” and “resident” as the status of the investigator when most of the work was done.   Membership in FAFP is a prerequisite for submission. 


Decisions will be based upon the following criteria:


  • Scholarly work valuable to family medicine

  • Scientific merit of the project



  • Completed Research

  • Research in Progress

  • Quality Improvement/Patient Safety Project

  • Case Report


No application will be accepted if it is determined that the purpose, findings, and/or conclusions are promotional in nature. If financial support has been provided for the preparation of the poster, please indicate on the disclosure form. Failure to disclose financial support will result in the application being disqualified. The FAFP, as well as the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), requires all presenters to sign a disclosure statement indicating whether or not financial support was provided.


Volunteer physician members of the FAFP Research Workgroup will review poster applications. Of those indicating a desire for an oral presentation, three abstracts will be selected for a podium presentation.

Comparisons of efficacy, contraindications, modes of administration, etc., between competitive products shall be fully presented. Editorial conclusions should be made with ethical restraint.
