Submission Details for STUDENT Poster Sessions

Students are encouraged to submit poster abstracts for consideration in the peer review process. The student poster session is an opportunity for students to present data, outcomes, and evidence resulting from interprofessional practice and education initiatives.  The Nexus Summit theme, Creating Results: Interprofessional Vision to Action drives an effort to highlight the practical success factors and critical intersection points between interprofessional education and collaborative practice throughout the nation. Student poster presentations, organized in 90-minute sessions, will be held during the Nexus Fair on July 30-31, 2018. Student presenters are expected to be with their poster during their assigned time to interact with attendees and answer questions.  

Accepted student submissions will receive special recognition in the conference program and one student poster will be selected for the “Interprofessional Student Achievement Award,” which will be presented during the Awards Celebration on Tuesday, July 31.

All submitting student authors must complete a student verification form as part of their application.
