Students: Apply for Poster Mentoring When Submitting Abstracts

Attention student SBM members! If you would like to have your accepted poster abstract evaluated by a senior SBM member during the 2016 Annual Meeting, you can indicate your interest by checking a box during the abstract submission process. (Not a student SBM member? Join today to enjoy this member benefit – and make yourself eligible for a discounted meeting registration!)

AM14 Poster Session

Attendees present posters at SBM's 2014 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.

Because the program’s popularity exceeds program slots, interested student SBM members are selected via a random drawing. Selected students are matched with senior members based on common behavioral medicine interests when possible.

Students who participated in the Poster Mentoring Program at the 2015 Annual Meeting said the experience helped them improve their work and think critically about their next career moves.

“The poster mentoring experience provided a networking opportunity, valuable feedback on my research design, and candid advice for completing my dissertation,” wrote one student.

“My (poster) mentor encouraged me to publish my work and gave me many suggestions for beefing up the literature review and discussion. I’m currently writing up the paper, and I hope to submit it in the next month,” wrote another.

Yet another student commented: “It was nice just to talk to my poster mentor about what she's done in her career, since I had just defended my dissertation and wasn't sure what I'd be doing next. It gave me a natural way to get input from another professional.”

Null Results Poster Session Planned

We all know that not all studies come out as hypothesized and that there is much to learn from what doesn't go as planned. For the first time, SBM's Annual Meeting will offer a poster session highlighting findings that did not come out significant (statistically or clinically). Please consider submitting an abstract for the null results poster session, and join your colleagues in sharing what you learned and how it shaped your future research.

The null results poster session will be Thursday, March 31 from noon to 1 p.m. EST.

To submit an abstract for this session, use SBM's abstract submission website; when prompted, select "poster only" and  indicate that you would like your poster availabile during the null results session.
