2022 Puerto Rico Chapter Abstract Competition
We are pleased to announce the 2022 Abstract Competition for ACP Puerto Rico Chapter. This event will be faced to face and will take place on Saturday, October 15, 2022, at La Concha Hotel.
This is an ACP Resident/Fellow Members' and Medical Students' competition. First author and presenter must be a Resident/Fellow or Medical Student member of the ACP Puerto Rico Chapter. Residents and Medical Students may apply for membership online.
Upon review by the Scientific Committee, if accepted, the committee will determine the categories of the abstract and if it will be an oral or poster presentation. The abstract may be a Clinical Vignette (reports of one or more cases that illustrate a rare disease entity or an unusual clinical presentation of an established disease), Basic or Clinical Research (clinical and/or laboratory research, delineating a new investigation into mechanisms of disease or consisting of a detailed review of a clinical problem), Quality Improvement, or High-Value, Cost-Conscious Care. Refer the Guide to Preparing for the Abstract Competition for more information. The Scientific Committee decision is final.
Abstracts can only be submitted electronically via the online abstract form. The word limit is 450 words and must conform the specifications in Guide to Preparing for the Abstract Competition. Click here for more information about who should be included as author. All abstracts must be in English and, if accepted for oral presentation, the presentation must be done by the first author face to face in English. If the first author cannot deliver the oral presentation, he/she must forfeit the abstract as oral or poster presentation. The abstracts accepted as poster will receive further instructions on size of the board for the face to face presentation. The submission of an abstract acknowledges the consent of all the authors on the abstract publication. The submitting author must ensure, that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract and that they consent to its submission and publication.
