Research & Scholarship Symposium

Rutgers School of Health Professions (SHP) Research & Scholarship Symposium recognizes and emphasizes the importance of research and scholarship conducted within our School.  The Research and Scholarship Symposium (previously Research Day) is a great networking opportunity for students and faculty members from different departments within our School and to augment faculty-student interactions through research.

Symposium Abstract Requirements – All submissions are due April 12, 2019 (for those who want to be considered for an oral presentation or for those who would like to have a poster in the Great Hall).

If you would like to be considered for an oral presentation during the Research and Scholarship Symposium, please indicate so on the online abstract submission form.

    • Sample Template for poster presentation
    • Please note that all posters should have the Rutgers SHP or RBHS logo in the upper left-hand corner (click here for Rutgers logo website/downloads), and should be sized to fit 36 x 48 rectangle (36 inches tall and 48 inches wide).  The sample template provides a traditional format, but please feel free to add, delete or modify the outline provided.  Additionally, you do not have to use this format and can take creative liberty in designing your own poster. Printing quality is important and you should have between 150-200 pixels per inch in order to avoid distortion.

Trifold and binder clips will be provided for you at the Research and Scholarship Symposium. You are responsible for the printing of the poster.  Set-up for posters begins at 9:00 a.m. Select student teams will be chosen to present to the larger audience.  These students will be notified in advance of the Research and Scholarship Symposium.
