  • The right kind of charts/graphs are used for the data
  • The conclusions support the results
  • Scientifically sound visual representation

All Medical Student Posters require review by Research Services staff before being submitted for presentation at a regional, national or international conference. Please contact Dr. Donohue to set up your free consult of your research poster, assistance with graph and chart design, proof-reading. Contact: Sarah Donohue at [email protected].
