2021 FamMed Forum Poster Contest

2021 Winners Announced; 2022 Call For Abstracts Opens Jan 3, 2022

The 2021 NJAFP poster contest is a wrap! The number of submissions nearly doubled in 2021 to 52 posters. Most entries are from residents, but the number of student submissions was much higher for 2021, which meant real competition in that category. NJAFP is thrilled that our poster contest is growing, and we look forward to an equally successful contest in 2022 when we will be live on-site again for poster displays and judging. Please take note of new deadlines; they are much earlier for 2022.

Thank you to judges who spent a lot of time judging posters and providing feedback to authors. NJAFP’s vision for this event is to encourage and guide students and residents in support of a life-long interest in primary care practice-based research.

To everybody who contributed – authors, program directors, faculty, judges – thank you for your time and effort!! See you in 2022!
