NEW for ACG 2018! Outstanding Poster Presenter Awards
The College is pleased to introduce a new award for “Outstanding Poster Presenter” at this year’s ACG Annual Scientific Meeting. ACG hopes to cultivate the ability of clinical GI researchers to use critical storytelling and presentation skills essential for a career as a clinical investigator and scientific communicator.
During Poster Rounds, all poster presenters will be invited to give a succinct and informative two minute briefing or “elevator pitch” on their research followed by one minute of Q&A with expert faculty judges. Each judge will then select one or more “Outstanding Poster Presenters” who are best able to communicate their key findings, the significance of their data, as well as to articulate the potential impact of their work for clinicians and patients. Multiple awards may be made in each abstract category.
All abstracts selected for poster presentation, with authors present at the assigned time, are eligible to win.
- Clinical Vignettes/Case Reports (5 or fewer patients only)
- Colorectal Cancer Prevention
- Endoscopy Video Forum
- Functional Bowel Disease
- General Endoscopy (EGD, colonoscopy, sedation, etc.)
- GI Bleeding
- Interventional Endoscopy (ERCP, EUS, ESD, bariatric endoscopy, etc.)
- Practice Management (quality, EMR, healthcare disparities, malpractice, etc.)

All abstracts submitted, regardless of whether or not they are selected for oral or poster presentation, will appear in a special supplement to the October 2018 issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology.
