Medical Teacher Poster Prize


The Medical Teacher Poster Prize will be awarded for the best poster, as selected by the Poster Prize Committee against published criteria. The winner will receive free registration to AMEE 2019 or a cash prize of £350.

The aim of the prize is to select examples of good practice in preparing posters. During the afternoon of Tuesday 28 August 2018, a rosette will be attached to the board of the top 3 posters selected by the committee for the short list from which the winner will be selected and announced at the final session on Wednesday 29 August 2018.  Participants can therefore see the posters that, in the opinion of the Committee, best reflect the aspects of a good poster.

For hints and tips on how to prepare poster presentations, AMEE Guide No. 40 is available for purchase and more information is available from the Awards and Prizes page.
