In order to increase the visibility of the excellent work being done by medical students, residents, and addiction medicine/addiction psychiatry fellows in New York State in the area of substance use disorders, the New York Society of Addiction Medicine is hosting a competition for medical students, residents, and addiction medicine/addiction psychiatry fellows currently training in NYS.
Following are details about this poster competition:
All medical students, residents, and addiction medicine/addiction psychiatry fellows in a clinical training program in New York State are eligible. Entrants can participate as individuals or as part of a team*.
Submissions from primary care residency programs, such as family medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, internal medicine, medicine/pediatrics, emergency medicine, and psychiatry, are especially encouraged. However, residents from all specialties also are invited and encouraged to submit entries for this competition.
(*only one award per team will be given)
Submissions must address: How substances use disorders impact the applicant’s specialty practice, patients, and/or clinical training program.
Submissions should be in the form of presentation materials (a PowerPoint presentation) addressing such topics as: ways in which substance use disorders affect patients and/or their families; what strategies or innovations a medical school, residency program, or fellowship program is implementing to address the needs of persons with substance use disorder diagnoses; best practices within the specialty that target prevention of substance use disorders; other specific approaches to the care and treatment of persons with substance use disorder; research in the area of substance use disorder; or other related topics. The presentation materials submitted should include both the factual presentation on addiction, as well as material about how the medical student/s, resident/s, or fellow/s are involved or have contributed to the topics covered.
