CAFP-Foundation Announces Winners of the 2022 Resident Poster Competition

The California Academy of Family Physicians Foundation (the Foundation) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 Resident Poster Competition.

  1. Case Report Winner: Chenxi Song, MD; Joshua Feuerstein, MD. (2022, April 23) Myocarditis as a Presenting Symptom of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Ninth annual CAFP Foundation Resident Poster Competition.
  2. Research Project Winner: Prabhneet K. Singh, MD; Tarnpreet Kaur, MD; Sumera Hayat, MD; Rachel D. Yankey, MD. (2022, April 23) ACEing Residency: ACEs Screenings in California Residency Programs. Ninth annual CAFP Foundation Resident Poster Competition.

Now in its 9th year, this contest supports California’s family medicine residents in meeting ACGME requirements for scholarly activity and provides a unique opportunity for residents to share their academic work with a state-wide community of family physicians.

Each fall, residents are invited to submit case and research abstracts that undergo a blinded peer review process. Of these submissions, 20 are selected to submit posters for a second round of blind review. The top 10 scoring posters are presented during a live forum, and the top two presenters, one case report and one research project, are awarded a prize.

In 2022, the Foundation received 31 abstract submissions from residents representing 20 different Family Medicine Residency Programs across the state. Members of the CAFP Foundation Board of Trustees (BOT) and alumni of the former Medical Student and Resident Affairs Committee served as reviewers. Submissions were evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Clarity of the research and/or clinical question
  • Study design and discussion and/or conclusion
  • Originality of the project or question
  • Relevance to family medicine, and
  • Potential to improve patient care or resident skills, knowledge and performance.

On Saturday, April 23, residents took to the stage to present their posters during CAFP’s Clinical Forum, using a 2-slide, 2-minute, 2-question format. Foundation Board President, Dr. Ronald Labuguen moderated the competition while a panel of physician members served as judges. Presentations were evaluated based on organization, clarity and understanding of the topic.

Congratulations to Dr. Song from Sutter Health Family Residency Program Sacramento/Davis for scoring the highest in the case report category, and to Drs. Singh and Kaur from St. Agnes Medical Center (Fresno) Program for scoring the highest in the research project category.

Thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this contest a success! In case you missed it, you can view the 20 posters in the online exhibit hall.
