Past Winners 


Poster Do's & Don'ts  



Osteopathic medical students and residents are invited to showcase your research during the Oklahoma Osteopathic Association’s Winter CME Seminar in Catoosa! All entrants must be a current osteopathic medical student or an osteopathic physician currently in a postgraduate training program. The judging panel will select first, second and third place winners, and the top three finalists will present their research Saturday, January 12, 2019 at a time to be determined. The OOA will be responsible for digitally displaying your posters at the 2019 Winter CME Seminar at the Hard Rock Hotel. All students and physicians in postgraduate training programs receive free registration to the Winter CME Seminar and are encouraged to attend.



As research is conducted in preparation to submit to the OOA’s Research Poster Symposium, applications can be made to the OOA for reimbursement of research expenses such as the cost for materials or fees. The OOA seeks to affirm and promote ongoing research among osteopathic students and physicians in training through disbursement of 10 individual $200 grants. Grant recipients must submit an abstract and poster for the 2019 Research Poster Symposium. Grants will not be disbursed until after the November 30, 2018 submission deadline.

In order to be considered for an OOA grant, you must submit receipts for the amount requested as well as an explanation of how the materials were used in your research to [email protected]. The applications will be reviewed following the November 30, 2018 submission deadline to ensure the applicant is participating in the 2019 poster symposium. Applicants who meet all requirements and are selected will be awarded monies within 30 days of approval from the OOA selection committee. Grant applications must be submitted by December 21, 2018 to be considered for this year’s symposium. It is possible all of the grants will be allocated prior to the December 21, 2018 deadline. 


The mission of the Oklahoma Osteopathic Association’s Research Poster Symposium is to showcase current osteopathic research and stimulate interest in future research projects. This will be accomplished through the gathering and exchange of ideas and information between participants of the symposium and attendees of the OOA Annual Convention and the opportunity for grant funding for future research.
