2021 UMMC Department of Medicine ACP Abstract Day

Warning message

Submissions for this form are closed.

On Thursday, October 28th, 2021, we will have the 26th annual University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) Department of Medicine American College of Physicians (ACP) Abstract Day. This year our event will be conducted in-person at the Norman C. Nelson Student Union in Jackson, Mississippi. Poster presentations will occur in the morning between 9:15 AM and 11:45 AM, and oral presentations will take place during lunch from Noon and 1:00 PM. 

All students, residents, and subspecialty fellows in an accredited medical school or internal medicine residency or subspecialty training program in Mississippi are eligible to submit their work.  We will have five categories of abstracts:

  • Clinical vignettes
  • Clinical research
  • Basic science research
  • Quality improvement and patient safety
  • High Value Care*

* High Value care includes projects that focus on reducing waste in the system (unnecessary testing and treatment or inappropriate setting for care), minimizing harms (radiation exposure, medication side effects), or improving patient care through communication (incorporating patient values and concerns into care plans).

The winner from each category will earn an automatic entry to Internal Medicine 2022, the ACP’s annual national meeting, which will be held in Chicago, Illinois, April 28-30, 2022.  Faculty judges will assess abstracts prior to the competition and will assess the presentations at the competition to determine the winners.

This year we will use the ACP abstract submission portal for collection of abstracts.  The portal will remain open until Wednesday, September 30, 2021, at 11:59 PM CDT.  There will be no extensions of this deadline.  Please keep that in mind when asking your co-authors to review your abstract drafts.

Your abstract must be no longer than 450 words, not including title, authors, and author affiliations.  Do not use tables, graphs, figures, or pictures in your abstract.  Also, do not include references in your abstract.  The content of your abstract must pertain to internal medicine.  If your abstract is not pertinent to internal medicine, you will receive notice within 48 hours of submission that your abstract is not eligible.

Submitting authors will receive an email notifying them of the judges’ decision regarding acceptance and type of presentation (oral or poster) on or before Tuesday, October 12th, 2021.  If you have any questions, please contact Peyton Treutel at ptreutel@umc.edu
