Students, residents, and fellows are invited to submit a poster each year for presentation at the Annual Meeting. Proposals on any topic relating to primary care research are welcome from researchers throughout North America and the world. The call for papers opens annually in May and the submission deadline is July 31 (midnight, EDT). 

Poster Walks

Poster Walks are themed walks that take place during select poster sessions at the NAPCRG Annual Meeting and feature different topics and methodologies. They are ideal for those new to primary care research who want to network with experts in the field, including students, residents, and fellows. 

Panel Sessions

The Resident and Fellow Panel sessions held at the Annual Meeting are designed to be an interactive and informal means to meet with prospective fellowship directors/program directors and learn practical tips about how to obtain your future career objectives. 

Networking Events

The Student, Resident & Fellows Happy Hour is held each year at the Annual Meeting. The reception is an opportunity for students, residents, and fellows to network with each other and the leaders of NAPCRG.
