2021 UPDATE: There will be no Poster Presentation for the National Students Paediatrics Conference (NSPC) 2021. Please check back here next year for details of the NSPC 2022 Poster Presentations.


As part of the NSPC, the annual poster competition aims to ‘Showcase Undergraduate Paediatric Research’. All delegates are invited to submit a poster on a paediatric-related topic. This may include research in paediatric medicine or surgery, case studies, elective, novel research or SSC/SSms. Submissions relating to general child health and obstetrics will also be accepted.


We require all posters to have an element of a literature review. Each poster's primary author must attend the NSPC, but other authors may be acknowledged. Please ensure that you have permission from all authors before submission.


Poster Details


Poster size must be A1 but there are no restrictions on font size and design layout. Delegates must print their own posters and bring them to the conference. Posters must include references, in the form of Vancouver or Harvard.


Please ensure that you have bought your NSPC ticket before submitting an abstract.


We will confirm by email that we have received your submission. The topic of the poster cannot be changed once the deadline has been reached.


The abstract submission should include:

•    The title of the poster
•    Author and contact email address
•    Medical School
•    An overview of your poster and is no longer than 250 words in length


At the conference, posters will be displayed all day. A judging panel will view the posters and abstract submissions. Finalists will then be selected to present their posters in front of the judging panel in the afternoon. All finalists will be issued with a certificate to acknowledge their achievement. The winner of the competition will receive a prize.
