During the Academy’s Winter Family Physicians Weekend: November 30th - December 3rd, 2023
Family Medicine Resident & Medical Students who are enrolled in accredited programs in the state of North Carolina, and who are Members of the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians, are eligible to participate.
The NCAFP Foundation is interested in practice-based research, but presentations may address any topic relevant to family medicine. Work-in-progress and case studies may also be submitted. Submissions must be of original work, not yet published. Projects previously presented at medical schools, “Research Days” or other similar events are acceptable. Concurrent submissions to other conferences such as NAPCRG and STFM are considered legitimate and are in fact encouraged.
All submissions will be reviewed by physician members of the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians Research Committee. Posters will be judged for awards PRIOR to the annual meeting. Review will focus on:
In instances in which the above criteria are judged not to apply, reviewers will seek to evaluate the extent to which the submitted presentation will be of interest to family physicians.
Awards are given to promote research in the specialty and are reserved for submissions of exceptional quality. An award of $400.00 will be given for the best presentation, and a $200.00 award for the runner-up presentation, in each of the Family Medicine Resident and the Medical Student categories.
