How to prepare a scientific poster

Academic posters are an excellent way for clinicians to showcase their work at conferences and meetings.  Similarly, to oral presentations, a successful poster can generate discussion amongst the audience members therefore it’s important to have a clear plan of what to say when stood alongside your poster. When done effectively they provide a succinct and attractive summary of your project. This session aims to provide you with a practical and concise method to prepare an academic poster.  The main focus should be on the content, results and conclusions, to allow your poster to be understood in the limited timeframe generally permitted.
