Each year, the Research Symposium hosts a contest in which student, resident, and fellow members can present abstracts of their research. Member entries may come with a poster, are expected to be original, and must be submitted on or before the deadline. Only one entry is allowed per member. Contest judges will award 12 prizes to top-scoring entrants. Prizes range from $150 to $250. Physician members are encouraged to volunteer as judges and can learn more through the AMA’s website.
The annual AMA Research Symposium will be held on November 10, 2017, at the 2017 AMA Interim Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii.
