What's New in the 2016 Call for Abstracts?

Pre-Conference Sessions

For the first time, Pre-Conference Sessions are a part of the Call for Abstracts.  The purpose of these sessions are to collaborate with like-minded attendees in a specific subject area/theme through presentations and group discussions. The sessions can contain various presentations, speakers, panels, etc. as it relates to the session theme. In the abstract, please explain the overall session theme, goal, and sub-topics. To encourage and promote audience engagement, a pre-conference workshop should include audience participation, small group discussions, and hands-on/interactive compontents. The pre-conference sessions will run over the course of 180 minutes, which you should take into consideration in your planning.

Speed Date Your Specialty Session

This popular session took place over lunch in 2014 and 2015. The 2016 session will take place on Saturday, October 8 from 9:00 - 9:50 am. Students and residents are encouraged to attend and "Speed Date" a variety of family medicine careers. Presenters are asked to prepare 15 minute oral presentations that discuss a specific area of family medicine. They will each present 3 times. The topic may be the same as another topic the presenters have submitted to FMM or it may be unique to this session. Presenters are encouraged to bring business cards and are welcome to bring handouts. Please note, it is solely the responsibility of the presenter to print and distribute any and all handouts. There will be NO AV for this session.  Interested submitters are asked to submit this information in Step 12 of the Call for Abstracts form.
