FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I ALREADY REGISTERED FOR THE PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED SESSION THAT WAS POSTPONED DUE TO THE SNOW.  DO I NEED TO RESUBMIT MY ABSTRACT FOR THE RESCHEDULED EVENT?

Yes,  availability and circumstances have changed for both presenters and judges.  We need to have your abstract resubmitted and  registered through the Student Abstract Entry Form in order to confirm your participation in the new event as well as to match you with a new group of judges. Resubmission also gives you the opportunity to update your abstract with new information and double check your submission against the formatting guidelines for the event program brochure.  

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PRESENT A POSTER?

All AMC health science students are welcomed and encouraged to participate, including School of Medicine, College of Nursing, Colorado School of Public Health, Graduate School, School of Dental Medicine, and School of Pharmacy.

I WANT TO PRESENT.  WHAT SIZE SHOULD MY POSTER BE AND WHAT RESOURCES DO YOU PROVIDE?

All presenters will be provided with an easel and a 40 x 60" foam posterboard.  We highly encourage you to bring your own pins along with your poster.  We will only have a limited number of pins on hand during the event.  Unless you are an official Phase II Research Track student, you are responsible for producing and printing your own poster to bring to the event.

ARE THERE ANY PARTICULAR FORMATTING OR PRINT QUALITY GUIDELINES FOR THE POSTERS?

No.  Your poster will be mounted on a 40 x 60" foam posterboard, but you are free to create your scientific poster as elaborately or as simply as you like.  For additional guidance on creating a poster, feel free to check out these tips for creating a scientific poster developed for MSA students.

IF I AM A PHASE I OR PHASE III STUDENT JUDGE, DO I NEED TO REGISTER ON SURVEY MONKEY AS A JUDGE?

No, the judge registration link is for faculty and professional clinician judges only.  Phase I and Phase III students will automatically be assigned posters to judge in both sessions.

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?

All Poster Presenters:  Between 12:00 and 12:45
All posters, including session 2 posters, will be on display for the entire forum from 1:00-3:30.  Please have your poster set up on your easel and available for viewing and judging by 1:00.  However, you will only be with your poster and actively presenting it during your assigned session.

All Phase I and Phase III School of Medicine Student Judges:  Between 12:00 and 12:50 for required attendance check in.  

CAN I CHOOSE WHICH SESSION I AM ASSIGNED TO PRESENT?

No, due to the nature of the poster categories and faculty judge availability, all students who register to present a poster must be available to present in either session.

WHEN WILL I FIND OUT MY SESSION ASSIGNMENT?
  
Once you submit your abstract on Survey Monkey using the Student Abstract Entry Form, you are automatically entered into the match process for faculty judges and will be scheduled to present in either poster session I or II.  Due to the nature of the match process, Poster Session assignments and easel numbers will not be available until Friday January 29th.
