Gain National Recognition and Advance Your Career

Enter to win one of two prestigious awards — the Student Resident Poster Award honors two meritorious scientific papers submitted for presentation as a poster at the AOPA National Assembly.

The American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) invites Students and Residents to present orthotic and/or prosthetic research findings or a case study via a poster presentation at the 2024 National Assembly to be held September 12-15 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Poster presentations should be a graphical display in a poster format using photographs, diagrams, flowcharts, graphs, and any sample educational materials. Your confirmation will include a link to templates and tools to help you create and ship your poster.

1. The Otto and Lucille Becker Award will be presented for the best orthotic abstract submitted for a poster presentation.
2. The Edwin and Kathryn Arbogast Award will be presented for the best prosthetic abstract submitted for a poster presentation.

Winners receive a cash prize of $500, plus hotel and airfare to the 2024 National Assembly. The submission deadline is July 15, 2024. For further information, contact 571-431-0860 or
