Southern California Region III 2015 Abstract Competition

Southern California Region III 2015 Abstract Competition

We are pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts for the 2015 ACP Southern California Region III Chapter Poster Competition, which will be held October 10, 2015 at Scripps-Mercy Hospital Education Center in San Diego. Because we are not having a Southern California Regional Meeting, each Region will be holding their own poster competition.

This is an ACP Resident/Fellow Members' and Medical Students' competition. First author and presenter must be an ACP Resident/Fellow Member or Medical Student with current membership status. Residents and Medical Students may apply for membership online. Limit of one (1) entry per first author, per category. Deadline for entries is 11:59 PM PDT on September 10, 2015.

Abstracts will be accepted into one of two categories: Clinical Vignette (reports of one or more cases that illustrate a rare disease entity or an unusual clinical presentation of an established disease), or Research (clinical and/or laboratory research, delineating a new investigation into mechanisms of disease or consisting of a detailed review of a clinical problem). Refer to the online guides How to Write a Clinical Vignette Abstract and How to Write a Research Abstract for more information. The word limit is 450.

This competition is open ONLY to members of the ACP Southern California Region III and San Diego Navy Chapters. Please use the online submission form to submit your abstract.

  • Poster size: 42 x 42 (square) or 32 x 42 (rectangular)
  • All communication regarding the abstract competition will be sent electronically.
  • Abstracts can only be submitted electronically. The abstract form is posted on the chapter Web site.
  • Deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. PDT September 14, 2015.

If your abstract is accepted for poster presentation, plan to set up your poster Saturday, October 10th between 8:00 a.m. and noon. Judging will begin at 1:30 p.m.

Please contact Natalie Kaczur if you have questions about the abstract competition.
