2017 Annual Meeting Poster Contest

at the Annual Meeting and Alumni Reunion

The Trainee Poster Contest is an important part of the Annual Meeting and Alumni Reunion. The contest is only open to trainees and other students in the Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology. The top two posters in each category (Clinical or Basic Science) will be announced during dinner and the winning trainees will be awarded $250 each.

To apply, go to the Annual Meeting and Alumni Reunion registration. At bottom of the page, you will be asked if you would like to apply for the Annual Trainee Poster Contest. Click "Yes" and complete the required fields. It would be helpful to have your abstract file open, so you can copy and paste the plain-text into the appropriate sections. Proceed through the rest of registration (make sure to select Reception, Poster Contest, and Dinner) and click finish.
