Early career professionals are invited to submit abstracts and case studies relevant to early professional development, current career trends in gynecologic oncology, and academic and grant writing.
The deadline for abstract submission has been extended through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, 2017. Submissions will be considered for one or more of the following sessions at the Early Career Educational Summit:
- Poster session
- Oral presentation with opportunities for audience engagement
- Special workshop session
Residents, fellows, and junior faculty are encouraged to submit original research and research projects—complete or still in development—for presentation, discussion, and possible workshopping among peers and experts in the field. Submissions will be accepted as oral presentations to be discussed and integrated into troubleshoot discussions throughout the Summit. This is a terrific opportunity for burgeoning gynecologic oncologists to receive important feedback on study design, presentation, and professional development.
The Early Career Educational Summit Planning Committee will review the submitted abstracts in a blinded review for quality, relevance, and potential educational impact. Grading will be based on content, originality, potential influence on the subspecialty and quality of presentation.
