The MAOFP SCIENTIFIC Poster Program allows Osteopathic students, Family Medicine residents, and Fellows an opportunity to display their educational research and cases in a conference setting, viewed by peers and attending physicians. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Summer Family Medicine Update, MAOFP is offering a virtual poster program.  This  program offers further educational opportunities for all.
