Submission Deadline: February 9, 2024

Each spring, the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association sponsors a Clinical Case Competition and Poster Forum. This event is open to osteopathic medical -students and residents affiliated with A.T. Still and Midwestern University, and faculty/preceptors in Arizona. This scientific, peer-reviewed, evidence-based opportunity displays the tremendous amount of high-quality scholarly activity that is developed on an annual basis.

The 16th annual competition will be held Saturday, April 20, 2024 at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort & Villas at 6333 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85250. The top three clinical cases will be selected to deliver an oral case presentation. The poster forum allows for poster presentations in each of three categories (case, research, performance/population health improvement). The winners of the oral case presentations and poster forum will be recognized with an award following the competition.

The AOMA is proud to sponsor this scholarly/research activity, as it has allowed for the delivery of high quality research, increased participation in the Association’s committee structure, as well as an increase in our membership. Most importantly, it is supporting the mission and vision of the organization by promoting the osteopathic medical profession and providing high quality medical education.

Complete details for entry submission, including previous winning entries, are available below.
