It is with pleasure that we announce that there will be an ACP Early Career E-Poster Competition, taking place on Thursday, March 30, during ACP's Internal Medicine 2017 in San Diego.

The Early Career E-Poster Competition differs significantly from the Medical Student and Resident/Fellow Member competitions currently held. The Early Career E-Poster competition will be online only with no onsite judging. We will limit the number of submissions to 100, with 50 selected to develop an online poster. The online posters will be online as well, with the authors able to include many of their source materials that along with the poster itself. In addition, the author may add voice-over narration to the poster so that viewers may hear from them what makes the findings significant, original and relevant.

The portal for the Early Career E-Poster competition will open in early October with submission accepted through December. Both case and research abstracts will be accepted. Judging and selection will take place in December. Those selected to develop an e-poster will be notified in early January. Once notified, they will be able to build their online poster and narration right up until the meeting.

This is a test year so during it, those who participate will receive neither complimentary meeting registration nor travel support. Nonetheless, participants will be included in the Young Achievers Program at the meeting with their name highlighted with other early career physicians who have participated in our programs.
