MNAAP's Sixth Annual Abstract Competition: May 12, 2017

Submission deadline: April 17, 2017
Open to: Pediatric Residents, Fellows, and Medical Students,

Attention pediatric residents, fellows and medical students! Once again MNAAP is hosting a poster competition preceding its annual meeting, which will be held Friday, May 12 at the Hyatt Regency in Bloomington.

The goal of the competition is to foster community among pediatric trainees across the state and provide another opportunity for resident and medical student scholarship in a supportive and enjoyable environment. Abstracts will be accepted in two categories: Case Report (clinical vignette/program report), or Original Research with a separate category of medical students submitting either of these categories.

Authors selected for the poster session on May 12, 2017, will need to attend the meeting to present their abstract/poster and be judged and viewed by Minnesota pediatricians at the annual meeting. Winners will be selected and prizes awarded with winning abstracts published in a statewide publication and a subsidy to attend the AAP National Conference and Exhibition in San Francisco if your AAP abstract has also been accepted.

Three winners will be identified – one for each group: Case/Program report (clinical vignette/program report), research, and a medical student. Examples of past winning abstracts are available for review in a past edition of Minnesota Medicine on pp. 48-51

Additionally, these abstracts can also be submitted to the national AAP abstract competition with a deadline date of April 7, 2017 at

Abstracts should number no more than 450 words and must be submitted electronically at by April 17, 2017. If you have additional questions, please contact Dr. Andrew Olson or Katherine Cairns

Good luck!
