Clinical Case Competition Awards

NMPRA invites all of its members to submit novel and interesting Med-Peds clinical cases for our annual Med-Peds Clinical Case Competition. We welcome cases submitted by both resident physicians and medical students. Cases should be interesting clinical presentations pertinent to Internal Medicine or Pediatrics and should also display significant educational value for a Med-Peds audience. Cases may not have been presented previously at regional or national levels. However, those who have presented locally may still submit their abstracts for consideration. Each resident physician and medical students may submit only one case for the competition.

Submission Details

Winning abstracts will have the opportunity to present their case at our NMPRA National Conference in the year of submission. Each speaker will have 10-15 minutes dedicated to their case.

You may either nominate yourself or request that your nominee’s Program Director submit an application on his/her behalf.

The application can be submitted by filling out this online form.
