Student Poster Presentations are often the highlight of the AMWA conferences for students, residents and physicians alike. AMWA’s 103rd annual meeting will be held March 23 – 25, 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

IMPORTANT! At this meeting student posters must be presented in a traditional poster format (3′ tall by 4′ wide, printed). Three student abstracts will be selected to give oral presentations on Saturday, March 24.

Before submitting an abstract, please read the submission guidelines below. You will be charged a $40 non-refundable fee upon submission of your abstract, payable by credit card. You will not be able to make changes to your abstract once submitted.

Poster abstracts may be submitted through this submission form. The deadline is November 17th, 2017 for all divisions (student, resident and physician). All abstracts submitted after the above deadline will be placed on a waitlist for acceptance.
