Starr Medical Student and Resident Research Forum


Student, resident and fellow members of AWS may submit up to two abstracts for the AWS Starr Medical Student and Resident Research Forum at the 2019 AWS Annual Conference. Abstracts are limited to 2250 characters and must have an Introduction, Methods, Results, Conclusions, and supporting author information. Incomplete abstracts will not be considered. Case reports and literature reviews will not be accepted. The deadline is 11:59PM EST on May 31.

You must be an AWS member to submit your abstract. Abstracts presented at other conferences are allowed, except for abstracts that you plan to present at the ACS conference. You cannot send an abstract on a project that is published prior to the conference. If your abstract is accepted, you must register for the 2019 AWS Annual Conference as a Student/Resident and present your work in person during the Scientific Session at the conference. (Please note that this session does not conflict with the medical student or resident activities at the ACS Clinical Congress.)

All abstracts are being considered for a Quickshot presentation at the AWS Annual Conference in San Francisco. More details will be provided at a later date.

Recognition and a monetary prize will be awarded for the top three medical student presentations and top three resident/fellow presentations ($250 for 1st, $150 for 2nd, and $100 for 3rd). The top student and resident/fellow presentation winners will also receive a complimentary ticket to the AWS Foundation Awards Dinner on Monday, October 28. 

Abstract submissions are now closed.
