Poster Title Name Title of Program David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA • Background • An exquisitely brief and riveting synopsis of the case. • Objectives • Use action verbs describing your learning goals for the reader, such as “usually recognize,” “diagnose,” “manage,” etc. • Aims • Use active voice. • List no more than two or three. • Methods • Adhere to the standard sequence of HPI -> PMH -> Fam/SocHx -> PE -> Labs -> Studies. However, not all of the above are necessarily relevant, and may not need to be included. • Consider breaking the case into sections (e.g. HPI, PMH, PE, etc.) to further organize the text for the reader. Use visual dividers to separate sections. • ROS should be included in the HPI only when it contributes to making the presentation interesting. • Results • Break your discussion into several headings; use tables and charts to make your points. • Use section headings (Epidemiology, Clinical Findings, Diagnostic Tests, etc.) and bullets. Avoid “big-block-of-text” format since these are hard to read. • If this is a common presentation of an uncommon disease, explain how it’s like other cases. • Review pathophysiology, epidemiology, risk factors, clinical characteristics, optimal diagnostic work-up, and treatment options. • If the case is an uncommon presentation of a common disease, explain how it is unique. • Discuss what factors might have led to this unusual presentation, and give thought to how clinicians should be alert to this unusual facet of the disease. • Do not include an abstract or references in the poster. • Conclusions • Break your discussion into several headings; use tables and charts to make your points. • Give extensive thought to the lessons that the Give extensive thought to the lessons that the case has to teach, and how a case like this should change the way doctors think about their patients. These lessons should drive the structure of the entire poster. • Be careful about bold, controversial statements (e.g. “all patients with chest pain should have emergent cardiac MRI”). • Policy Implications • Wrap up the points on how your case should impact clinical practice. • Are there broader policy considerations that make your case even more compelling?
