Final results are not required, and ‘works in progress’ and posters that have been recently presented at other meetings are welcome. Open to all trainees (including students), research staff, and faculty. 

  • All submitted abstracts will be included in an electronic abstract book and will be invited to participate in the poster session during the retreat.
  • Trainee abstracts (students, residents, fellows) will be peer-reviewed, with the ‘best’ abstract in each category selected for platform presentation. 
  • Note: We are encouraging the submission of abstracts related to community-engaged research.
