Overview
We welcome descriptive abstracts regarding innovative educational programs and educational research projects by all levels of learners: students, fellows, residents, and faculty across all the Schools of the Health Sciences. Abstracts that have already been presented at national, regional, or other local meetings (such as GME Leadership Conference) are welcome, as are abstracts with significantly updated data/experience since being presented at a prior Med Ed Day Conference.

Categories
We encourage submissions of student/fellow/resident and faculty-driven projects in both categories of poster abstracts: descriptive and research.

Descriptive Abstracts: Abstracts submitted in this category include descriptions of an educational tool, process, or innovation.  These may include curricular or evaluation projects or other interventions that have been implemented and evaluated in your program. A clear description of the project, along with how the project has been evaluated, should be included. Statistical analysis is not required, but may be included, if performed.

Descriptive abstracts should include the following section headings:

  • Needs and objectives
  • Setting and participants
  • Description
  • Evaluation
  • Discussion/reflection/lessons learned

Educational Research Abstracts: Abstracts submitted in this category should consist of research studies with data already collected. They should be hypothesis generated and have conclusions supported by the data presented. Statistical analysis should be included in the submission.

Educational Research abstracts should include the following section headings:

  • Background
  • Hypothesis
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusions/Significance

***Detailed descriptions of each abstract type can be found HERE.

Guidelines

  • Abstract summaries may not exceed 3000 characters (with spaces). This is approximately 400 words.
