Research Abstracts


The objective of the American Osteopathic Association’s (AOA) poster session/competition is to provide an opportunity for researchers, both new and mature, to disseminate their research to a broader audience. 

The Poster Session is an integral part of the Osteopathic Medical Conference & Exposition (OMED) experience. Investigators interested in participating will submit an abstract of their research project. The abstracts that are approved will be published on The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association (JAOA) website. 

The Poster Session will include a student poster competition. The poster competition is held in collaboration with the National Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA). Students must enter the competition at the time of their abstract submission.
