Abstract Submission Guidelines

Request for Abstracts for Posters and Oral Presentations

Yale faculty, residents, fellows, students, and staff are invited to submit abstracts for posters and/or oral presentations about their educational projects. Categories for both posters and oral presentations are "Medical Education Research" and “Innovation in Education." The term “medical education” is used broadly and refers to the education of all types of health professionals. Topics may include teaching, curriculum, assessment, mentoring, educational leadership, etc.

We encourage submitting abstracts for presentations that will be newly developed for Med Ed Day at Yale, as well as for projects that may have been presented at other meetings.

Posters used at other meetings are permitted, as long as they adhere to the Poster Size Limitations described in the Create a Poster section of this site.

New Oral Presentation Option

This year, in addition to showcasing posters at Medical Education (Med Ed) Day at Yale, we will feature a small number of oral presentations.

Therefore, 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.
