John Adler, MD, Professor of Neurosurgery, Stanford University and Editor-in-Chief at Cureus gives us a poster competition update in this latest video.
Posters continue to come in and promotion is underway. If you want to finish in the top 10 and have a chance at winning your category, get your peers and professors to vote for you.
Several programs are doing a great job of getting their team behind their posters…ensuring they will be in the top 10 in their respective category. Nice work!
Nice work from Stanford and University of Washington coming out of nowhere to get onto the leader-board in strong fashion….and late breaking news…congratulations to Alabama and University of Central Florida coming on very strong in the last few days.
There is lots of time left for new schools to get on the board and for those of you already entered to start promoting. Have you used the “social voting” tools?
Several months ago we started a revolution in medical publishing by offering tools for physician authors unlike any in the industry. Today we expand the revolution to include medical and graduate students, residents, fellows and anyone who has or will publish a medical poster. There are thousands of posters discarded after conferences every year and yet they represent hard work, creative thinking and many will lead to the next full academic papers.
Dust off those posters sitting on your hard drive and upload them to Cureus where they can receive new life.
To have some fun we are introducing our Fall 2012 International Poster Competition which includes a $1,000 Grand Prize and $100 prizes for each of our 40 categories. Each category will have a winner for a total of 40 First Place prizes. We are honored to have Varian Medical Systems participate as the sponsor of the competition. They are a company that values innovation and are strong supporters of physician authors who are pushing to advance medical science and discourse.
As authors you may submit any poster you have created over time and as many as you like. Once you upload your poster, its time to promote….get friends, family, professors etc. to come vote for your poster. The top 10 vote recipients in each category will make it to the final round where our esteemed Editorial Board members will select the Top 3 Winners in each category. Top 3 winners will get noted in their profile and can add this distinction to their CV…plus bragging rights.
Go to www.cureus.com/posters to get started.…the sooner your poster is submitted, the sooner you can begin getting votes and head toward victory.
Let the games begin.
