Midwest Pediatric Cardiology Society Abstract Submission

Saint Louis University

September 7-8, 2017

 

Abstract Policies & Guidelines

  • All abstracts must be submitted electronically by July 16, 2018 (11:59 CST) by email to Barbara Bequette at bbequet1@slu.edu.
  • All uploaded abstracts must be in a Microsoft Word format, not exceeding one page, with a limit of 300 words plus one optional figure or table.
  • Abstracts must include all co-authors of the abstract, including the presenting author and their level of training (medical student, resident, fellow, attending, or nurse/APN). Select the level of training in which the bulk of the work was performed (for example, a project completed primarily in residency but presented in the first year of fellowship should be submitted at a resident level).
  • The body of your abstract should describe and clearly state the background, methods, results, and conclusions of your research.
  • No revisions or changes will be accepted to submitted abstracts after the deadline.
  • The Planning Committee will determine whether the abstract will be accepted for an Oral Presentation, or a Poster Presentation, with consideration given to the author’s preference. Please provide the contact information for the presenting author for timely notifications.
  • NOTE: If previously submitted to a different meeting an abstract may still be submitted.
  • Poster and abstract presenters must register to attend the 2017 Midwest Pediatric Cardiology Society Annual Meeting.
