Abstract Submission Guidelines

Yale faculty, residents, fellows, students, and staff are invited to submit abstracts for posters and/or oral presentations about their educational projects. We encourage submitting abstracts for presentations that will be newly developed for Med Ed Day at Yale, as well as those that have been previously submitted or presented at other meetings.

Requests for Poster Abstracts will open in February 2024.


  • Medical Education Research
  • Innovation in Education

Eligible Participants

We actively encourage submissions from colleagues in the School of Medicine, Physician Associate Program, Physician Assistant Online Program, School of Nursing, School of Public Health, and beyond.


Topics may include (but are not limited to) teaching, curriculum, assessment, mentoring, and/or educational leadership.


When you submit your abstract, please indicate whether you would like your project to be considered for:

  1. A poster presentation
  2. An oral presentation or
  3. Either a poster or an oral presentation

Please note: projects will be accepted either as posters presentations or oral presentations, not both.


Poster presenters are expected to prepare an academic poster that communicates a medical education research project or educational innovation through images and text. Poster presenters are expected to be available on Med Ed Day to answer questions and read comments left by those viewing their work.

Oral Presentations

In addition to showcasing posters at Med Ed Day, we will feature a small number of oral presentations. These 10-minute presentations will consist of an overview of a medical education innovation or research project, followed by a brief Q&A. Time limits will be strictly administered by the session moderator. Presenters should plan to be available on Med Ed Day.
