Abstracts Deadline: June 11, 2020, 4:00 pm CST
Abstracts will be peer reviewed for presentation at the 2020 Research Forum. Abstracts will be accepted that are judged scientifically valid and that yield important information which will ultimately affect patient care. Abstracts submitted, or the resultant manuscripts, must not appear in a referenced journal before publication of the meeting abstracts in the October 2020 issue of Annals. Case reports or subject reviews are not considered original research.
The Research Committee will review abstracts blinded to authors. Notification will be sent in early July 2020. We regret that we cannot give notification information by telephone.
All abstracts will be presented electronically. The top 20 abstracts will be selected for oral presentation (7 minutes in length followed by a 3-minute discussion) in plenary-type sessions. Other accepted abstracts will be presented (3-5 minutes in length followed by a 2-minute discussion) in topic specific small group sessions. All abstract presentations will be moderated by emergency medicine physicians with expertise in the selected content area.
The Research Forum Medical Student Scholar Program is a unique volunteer opportunity for medical students interested in research. Scholars assist with social media promotion and help speakers and moderators during the abstract presentations (ie, trouble shooting A/V, recording audience questions, etc.). Scholars receive a branded Research Forum t-shirt and a certificate of appreciation from the ACEP President.
Additional information regarding the program will be available in July 2020.
