Submit Your Spectacular Case for a Clinical Congress Discussion

April 08, 2020 9:31 AM | Anonymous

We invite ACS-member surgical residents and associate fellows to submit ONE case worthy of a discussion at the annual Spectacular Cases panel at Clinical Congress 2020. 

Seven selected spectacular cases will be selected.  This is an opportunity for residents and associate fellows to present a case with spectacular significance (hint: because of a multidisciplinary approach in how the case was managed).  Cases will be presented in an M & M style of case discussion.  Selected spectacular cases (NOT case reports) will be presented to a group of expert panel members, followed by an interactive discussion. 

The discussion will be held on Tuesday, October 6, 2020, from 8:00 – 11:15 am at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress 2020, in Chicago, IL.

Submissions are due by 5:00 pm CST on May 3, 2020   No exceptions for late entries. 

You will need for your application:

  1. Name
  2. Title
  3. Institution you are working at/training at
  4. City, state
  5. PGY level
  6. Phone number, preferably cell phone
  7. Email address
  8. Twitter handle
  9. One-page, 300 words (or less) abstract that includes the title and description of the case.   Pictures and/or graphs are permitted.  The references included can be outside of the 300-word limit.
