Poster competition

Research can come in many forms and there is growing evidence that clinical research improves patient outcomes and wellbeing. It benefits the overall healthcare system, the wider workforce and patients. We are pleased to invite abstract submissions from both qualified FPA members and PA student members.

Individual and group abstract submissions will be considered and can be related to the following topics:

  • projects and/or research projects
  • clinical practice 
  • quality and improvement 
  • patient care 
  • COVID-19.
Delegates interested in submitting an abstract are required to download and review the abstract formatting guidelines prior to completing the abstract submission form. The deadline for abstract submissions is 23 October.

Abstract submissions are to be emailed to fpaevents@rcp.ac.uk 

Successful applications will be notified by 31 October and invited to submit a poster. The deadline for successful applicants to submit their final posters will be 18 November.


All shortlisted posters will be considered by the editorial teams of the Royal College of Physicans journals to see if they offer scope for expanding into full journal articles for publication in one of our peer reviewed journals, Clinical Medicine and the Future Healthcare Journal. The winner and highly commended submissions will also be showcased in an FPA membership newsletter.

Judging the poster competition will be:

  • FPA president – Jamie Saunders
  • FPA vice president – Chandran Louis
  • FPA education committee chair – Amy Donaldson-Perrott
  • FPA research committee chair – Silothabo Dliso.

The results of the poster competition will be announced by the FPA president and vice president during the virtual conference on 2 December (day 2).
