During the 109th Annual Florida Osteopathic Medical Association Convention, recently held at the Hyatt Regency Bonaventure in Weston, NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) and its affiliated postgraduate programs, received seven of the nine research prizes at the association’s Second Annual Resident and Student Research Poster Competition. Additionally, 47 of the 54 poster entries were from COM students or Osteopathic Postgraduate Training Institution (OPTI) residents.

Janet Hamstra, Ed.D., assistant professor of internal medicine and director of preclinical education, served as the competition’s head judge. Three other COM faculty members also judged the event along with three representatives from the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine-Bradenton. The COM judges were John Pellosie, Jr., D.O., M.P.H., director of graduate programs; Cyril Blavo, D.O., M.P.H. and T.M., director of the college’s Master of Public Health Program; and Tye Barber, D.O., Ph.D., assistant professor of family practice and OMT. Students, residents, and affiliated OPTI programs from various osteopathic colleges were judged in three categories:

•    Osteopathic Resident Case Study
•    Osteopathic Medical Student Case Study
•    Osteopathic Medical Student Experimental Research

Nine winners were selected, with first-, second-, and third-place winners receiving $750, $250, and $100, respectively.
