Guidelines for Poster Presentation

Important: The following is an excerpt. Read the full Guidelines here.

We ask each participant to pay close attention to these guidelines as the guidelines are meant to serve as a template to help you organize and present your poster. In addition there is a short piece on the background of why posters have become a prominent part in the science of medicine. It is excerpted from “How to prepare and publish a Scientific Paper” by Robert A. Day 5th edition, chapter 30. If you would like to read it, click here.

There will be two Galleries at the meeting. One for Students (A PA student includes Bachelors, Masters, and DHSc candidates that have or will graduate in the calendar year of 2013), and one Gallery for Graduate PAs.

General Requirements

All abstracts must be submitted by a PA or PA student who is an active fellow or student member of AFPPA; and can claim authorship in the project. Authorship is defined as substantial participation; which includes involvement in the concept and design, or analysis and interpretation of data, drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content and final approval of the version to be published. Authorship is not acceptable if the author only provides encouragement, physical facilities, financial support, critiques or editorial contributions.

An individual may be the submitting author on up to two abstracts, but cannot be included as an author on more than three. Authorship limitations maybe waived for faculty sponsoring students in Bachelor, Master, or Doctorate programs.

Individuals or companies who are interested in presenting scientific information but did not have substantial participation by a physician assistant are encouraged to refrain from this presentation at this time. They are encouraged to submit their information for exhibit in the AFFPA exhibit hall. Please submit a request through www.afppa.org on the contact us tab and be sure to mention the Research and Education committee in your request. For more information on presenting in the exhibit hall, contact Minnie Chau at minnie@chamberlainmedical.com.

Expenses associated with the submission, preparation and presentation of posters is the responsibility of the presenter. Presenters who are accepted by AFPPA may register for the conference but are not required to do in order to present. Additionally if an accepted presenter wishes to attend the conference they may do so at a reduced rate. For more information on registration and costs please contact info@afppa.org or call 508-998-6000.

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is an American Southwest-themed Disney Moderate Resort hotel set on Lago Dorado – a glimmering 22-acre lake – that invokes the spirit and romance of Spanish-colonial Mexico.

Conveniently located between Disney’s Animal Kingdom® and Disney’s Hollywood Studios™ theme parks, the brightly colored Spanish-style guest rooms, conference facilities, shops, restaurants and cantinas evoke a relaxing atmosphere inspired by a placid lifestyle where time goes by just a little bit slower than usual.

The nearly 2,000 guest rooms are separated into three distinctly themed areas. The “casitas” offer an urban terra cotta paradise. The rustic “ranchos” resemble charming Southwestern pueblos. And the “cabanas” provide a quaint beachfront retreat complete with cozy hammocks.

In addition to having a variety of Disney® theme parks right next door, resort guests are treated to several on-site luxuries including the choice of swimming in three heated pools, working out at the La Vida Health Club, playing at the Iguana Arcade and exploring the many trails around the resort!

Special rates for AFPPA conference attendees begin at $153 per night. To make your hotel reservations, book online or call 407.939.1020 today, and mention that you are with the AFPPA Spring 2012 conference. These rates are guaranteed only until February 28, 2012, and it is possible that the property will sell out before then.

Once your room reservation is booked, take advantage of Disney’s complimentary transportation service to and from the Orlando International Airport.

Call 407.WDW.DINE to make your leisure-time dining reservations up to 90 days in advance. See a listing of Disney Signature Dining restaurants, locations and menus here.
