NAME is now accepting abstracts for the NAME 2018 Annual Meeting
Deadline May 14, 2018
West Palm Beach, Florida
October 12 - 16, 2018
Theme "Forensic Pathology in the Palm of Your Hand"
The theme is meant to stimulate ideas for submissions and allow us to organize some topics into section blocks. It should not discourage one from submitting an abstract that falls outside of these themes.
We invite you to submit your abstracts online at http://bit.ly/NAME2018Abstracts
Please read the instructions provided online carefully. Mailed, faxed, or emailed abstracts will not be considered by the selection committee. Deadline for submission of abstracts is 11:59pm Eastern Time, May 14th.
Presentation options will be short platform (20 minutes or less), long platform (one hour or less), workshop (greater than one hour), and poster. If submitting an abstract for a platform presentation, the submitter will indicate the estimated duration of his/her program. Each abstract submission will require companion questions for self-assessment modules (SAMs). Specific directions will be available on the abstract submission site.
Awards will recognize outstanding papers and posters; specific instructions and judging criteria will be available on the abstract submission site.
The award categories are:
• Mary Fran Ernst Best Affiliate Paper/Poster Competition (one award for Paper or Poster)
(MUST BE A NAME AFFILIATE MEMBER)
• John Pless Best Student Paper/Poster Competition (one award for Paper and one award for Poster)
• John Smialek Best Resident Paper/Poster Competition (one award for Paper and one award for Poster)
• Susan P. Baker Public Health Impact Award (one award for Paper)
A note on SAMs:
Completion of SAMs is a component of ABP recertification for an increasing number of NAME Fellows. Every submitted abstract will require accompanying SAMs questions and, later, supportive documentation such as a handout or a PowerPoint. The handout or PowerPoint (not necessarily the actual presentation ppt) must answer the SAMs questions. Directions will be on the abstract submission site. On behalf of NAME Fellows in the ABP Maintenance of Certification program, thank you for contributing to the NAME SAMs program – a component of NAME’s educational mission.
We look forward to an excellent NAME meeting in West Palm Beach!
