  • The abstract must be submitted online and no more than 250 words.
  • Those individuals who had an assigned research elective are encouraged to submit an abstract of their accomplishments.
  • All abstracts submitted by Department of Medicine trainees, students and grad students will be judged.
  • Be sure to submit your abstract before the deadline as there will be no extensions to the deadline this year. Once submitted your abstract cannot be revised - please email Lauri Cameron to discuss updates to data etc.
  • Faculty members may submit an abstract for Display Only - abstracts are not judged.
  • NEW FOR 2018 - Disclosure forms are included in the online abstract submission form and are required to be completed before you can click the "submit" button. 
  • An automatic confirmation email will be sent to you. If you do not receive an email at the email address you provided on the abstract submission form please contact Lauri Cameron.

Helpful Hints

  • Get your posters started as soon as you've submitted your abstract. It will save you rushing to get your poster done later! If you are selected for an oral presentation and you've printed your poster we can make room for your poster for display only.
  • If you're waiting for your data, submit your abstract now! Contact Lauri Cameron to tell her you will have your data later and we will be able to revise the program to include your data as long as you get it submitted by email no later than May 1st. It's easier to withdraw your poster from Resident Research Day than it is to miss the abstract submission date and not be able to present this year!
  • Remember to email your vacation request so you can get the day off to present your research.  It is your responsibility to coordinate the time off for Research Day.
  • Most importantly - ALL submitted abstracts are accepted and given poster space. Nine abstracts will be selected by the Review Committee to present as oral presentations. In that instance you won't be assigned a poster location.
