No, regardless of whether your school decides to post the abstract online it’s still a poster. You know it’s a poster, I know it’s a poster, and a residency program would know it’s a poster. And it’s not clear to me that a non peer reviewed online publication is actually better than a poster anyways—anyone can write whatever they want for a nothing website and call it a “publication,” but actually putting together a poster and presenting it in an academic setting and answering questions means you did something and at least is a more accepted kind of currency on CVs.
