  • The deadline for submission of abstracts is 11:59 PM on Saturday, December 4, 2021.
  • Electronic Abstract Submission Form - Please note abstracts may only be submitted electronically using the abstract form. 

Abstract selection is competitive; not every submission will qualify for podium presentation or poster exhibition. Each abstract will undergo careful review and will be ranked for scientific merit, originality, proper presentation and clinical application.

Medical Student abstracts will be considered for poster exhibition only.  The Best Medical Student Poster Award will be selected beforehand and the student will be notified.  Every effort to attend the meeting to accept the prize is encouraged.

Six Resident abstracts representing clinical vignettes and original research projects will be selected for live presentation at the meeting or pre-recorded podium presentations depending on best practice on the meeting date.  Podium presentations will be ranked by a distinguished panel of judges.  The chapter offers the opportunity for the podium winner to attend the 2023 National ACP Meeting in San Diego, CA with a chance to present their work in the national competition.

Abstracts may only be submitted electronically using the electronic abstract form. Please follow submission instructions carefully and provide all information requested.  After completing the abstract submission, including the fields at the bottom of the page, click the "Submit" button.   You will immediately be notified that your abstract has been sent to the RI Chapter and that a confirmation e-mail is being sent to you.  If you do not receive a confirmation message, it means that you have not completed all of the required steps and you will need to resubmit your entry. 

We encourage you to submit your abstract early to ensure that it is received on time.  The deadline for entry is Saturday, December 4, 2021.  The web site will no longer accept abstract submissions after 11:59 PM.
