2015 CEME Poster Contest Winners

Scientific Poster Competition

The Consortium for Excellence in Medical Education (CEME) proudly sponsors a scientific poster competition every year to recognize the great research efforts which occur at affiliated residency programs and by our NSU-KPCOM students. Cash awards are given to those who place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the competition under two different categories (experimental research and case presentation). This event also provides a significant amount of professional experience and scholarly advancement of knowledge.

The CEME Student/Intern/Resident/Fellow Scientific Research Poster Competition is open to students, interns, residents and fellows who are training at NSU-KPCOM or in a CEME-affiliated program.
