2024 Student Research and Scholarship Day Poster Templates Attached.

These are managed by COM Communications and OSA. Please do not alter the look or logos. 


• Per FAU Branding Guidelines, you can not alter the FAU Schmidt College of Medicine Logo. If you need to add another institution’s logo, please move over the Poster Title text box, and insert the logo in the upper left corner. 

• Please reference the American College of Physicians' “Guide to Preparing a Poster Presentation” when preparing your submission. 

• Your name & mentor names should be spelled out completely with first and last name, and include appropriate title (First name Last name, MS2, M.D., Ph.D. etc.). Make sure that all authors and institutional affiliations are listed. Traditionally, the mentor(s) name(s) is listed last, but please discuss the listing order with your principal investigator/mentor. 

• Keep the lettering simple. Use no more than three different font sizes; the largest for the poster title, second-largest for section titles, and smallest for text. The smallest font should be large enough so it is easily read from a distance of 3 to 5 feet (usually, 24-point font). However, the references can be smaller text size. • There should be no large blank spaces on your poster. 

• You MUST include a reference section- If you need to reformat the poster to fit them in, please keep in mind that all sections of font should still remain the same size (the references section can be smaller than the rest of the font) 

• Make sure your poster is HIPAA compliant. Crop photos with any identifiable features. If you are using images of a patient, please provide written approval from the patient and submit it to OSA along with your poster. Contact the Office of Student Affairs if you have any questions about photos and/or descriptions.
