Student/Resident Poster Awards made possible by Becker Orthopaedic and WillowWood


AOPA invites O&P Students and Residents to present research findings or a particular case study via a poster presentation at the 2013 O&P World Congress to be held September 18-21  in Orlando, FL, USA. The Student – Resident Poster award will honor two meritorious scientific papers submitted for presentation as a poster at the 2013 O&P World Congress. The purpose of these awards is to encourage students and residents to display outstanding posters at the Congress or Annual AOPA National Assembly.

  • The Otto and Lucille Becker Award will be presented for the best orthotic abstract submitted for a poster presentation.
  • The Edwin and Kathryn Arbogast Award will be presented for the best prosthetic abstract submitted for a poster presentation.

The winners will receive a $500 cash award, registration, coach-class airfare and three nights hotel accommodations at the Gaylord Palms Resort.  To qualify to present a poster in this category and be eligible for consideration for this award, the main author must be a student (baccalaureate or master level) or a resident at a qualified patient care facility.

Poster presentations should be a graphical display in a poster format using photographs, diagrams, flowcharts and graphs and any sample educational materials.

Abstracts will not be considered for either award if they have been previously presented, published, or are currently submitted with pending decision on acceptance elsewhere.

These awards have been made possible by a special endowment by Becker Orthopedic and WillowWood. If you are a student and/or resident please submit your abstract online. Submission Deadline is July 31, 2013.  For further information, contact Tina Moran via email or at (571) 431-0808.  Don¹t miss the 2013 O&P World Congress!
