2018 Scientific Sessions Poster Presentation Submission Guidelines

Trainees (residents, fellows, and trainees in postgraduate nursing or physician assistant programs) from all programs in Connecticut are invited to submit an abstract for the poster session at the 2018 Connecticut Chapter of the American College of Cardiology annual meeting, which will be held on Wednesday April 11th, 2018 at the The Waterview, 215 Roosevelt Drive, Monroe, CT. Abstracts may be submitted in one of two categories: original research (basic, translational or patient-based) or case vignettes. Accepted abstracts will be presented in one of two moderated poster sessions. A panel of judges will score the posters in each category. Prizes will be awarded to the best posters. In addition, those trainees that have an abstract accepted for presentation will be eligible for a reduced registration fee for the meeting.
