9th Annual Research Fair – CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

To:  All Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center Interns, Residents and Fellows

RE:  Ninth Annual Research Fair – CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The Ninth Annual Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center Resident Research Day will be held on Friday, May 15, 2015 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital, Conference Room B.

We are particularly pleased to announce that after hearing your feedback from last year, we have changed the format for this year’s event.

Submitted abstracts will be judged by outside reviewers (i.e. non-MSSLR program directors/associate program directors).  The day of the event, judges will begin poster rounds at 11:00am.  Trainees will be expected to give a 3 minute presentation about their work to their assigned judge.  Judges will complete a scoring sheet during and after each presentation.  Work will be judged on the following:

1.)     Originality of the topic
2.)     Significance of the research project (n/a for case reports)
3.)     Formulation of hypothesis, null hypothesis, and clear goals (n/a for case reports)
4.)     Methodological approach
5.)     Analysis of data
6.)     Do the data and results support the conclusion (s)?
7.)     Clarity of writing/Presentation skills

Trainees not physically present to provide a presentation will automatically be disqualified.

Three monetary prizes will be awarded to those who garner the highest calculated score.

The process to participate:

1.)     Posters presented elsewhere may be submitted but posters previously submitted to a MSSLR Research Fair may not.
2.)     All trainees (interns, residents and fellows) are encouraged to submit.
3.)     An Abstract Submission Form must be completed in its entirety.  Abstract must be submitted as MS Word document with a narrative no longer than 300 words.  Each submission requires Faculty Mentor approval/signature.  Submissions without faculty approval will not be displayed.  All abstracts must be submitted electronically to Judy Irons ([email protected])
4.)     MSSLR has capacity to display 70 posters.  If submissions reach the maximum number, trainees with several submissions may be asked to withdraw their additional submissions so that all trainees are given the opportunity to enter at least one project.
5.)     The deadline for submission is April 10, 2015.
6.)     The Medical Art Department provides poster design services.  Visit their webpage here:  http://cm.chpnet.org/corp/departments/Illustration/index.html.
7.)     If you wish to design your own, templates for MSSLR are available through New Innovations – Resource tab – “Poster Template” folder.
8.)     The GME Office does not fund poster printing.  You and/or Department are responsible for this.

Lastly, the 10 posters with the highest score (3 of which will be our prize-winners) will be entered and displayed at the System-wide Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai GME Research Day held on June 5, 2015.    Further details about this day will be provided at a later date.

Please feel free to contact the GME Office with any questions.
