Sixth Annual Camden Scholars’ Forum Poster Contest

Save the Date! Cooper University Health Care and Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU) present the Sixth Annual Camden Scholars’ Forum Poster Contest on April 15, 2019.

The program recognizes outstanding achievement in the fields of research and performance improvement. All eligible posters will be judged by Cooper and CMSRU faculty and scored for the abstract, poster design, title clarity and completeness, methods, results, and discussion/conclusions. Contest winners will give a short oral presentation about their projects during the forum on April 26, 2019. Top-scoring posters in each category will receive a prize.
