Poster Competition

Call for Abstracts

Submission deadline: Friday, October 2, 2020

Dear Medical Students, Neurology Residents and Fellows,

The Massachusetts Neurologic Association is pleased to announce a Call for Abstracts for poster presentations at the Fall (Annual) Meeting to be held on Saturday, October 31, 2020 (8:00 - 2:00 PM).

Poster Competition

Medical students, residents, and fellows are invited to participate. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to display their poster and give a short slide presentation to the audience (5-min max) at the Meeting. All accepted posters will receive a certificate and the top posters will receive an award certificate and cash prize. More details will be included in the acceptance letters.

Clinical Vignette or Research

Your abstract may be either a clinical vignette or research. A clinical vignette is a report of one or more cases that illustrates a new disease entity, or a prominent or unusual clinical feature of an established disease. It may include a summary of pertinent patient history, physical findings, laboratory data, or management description. A research submission can report clinical and/or laboratory-based research, delineate a new investigation into mechanisms of disease, or consist of detailed review of a clinical problem. Abstracts concerned with efficiency, cost or method of health care delivery, quality of care, and medical decision making are also encouraged. 

Abstract Eligibility

Original abstracts that either have or have not been presented at other meetings will be considered. Abstracts are eligible if they have been published; however, abstracts based upon full papers that have been published are not eligible.
