The purpose of the Poster Presentations at the AAMD Annual Meeting is to promote and encourage medical dosimetry professionals and students to pursue research activities within their clinical settings that then can be showcased as posters.
Currently, this is a non-competitive, peer-reviewed process.
Click Here to submit a Poster Abstract for the upcoming AAMD Annual Meeting.
To submit your Poster Abstract, you will need the following information:
The purpose of the abstract is to convey the significance of your work and to describe your contribution. Reviewers are looking specifically at what you did when they evaluate your abstract, so be clear. Reviewers also want to understand how your work has led to new information. Similarly, include a sentence or two at the beginning of your abstract about the context of your work and another sentence or two at the end about how your findings advanced the field. This will help the reviewers.
The submission will consist of three paragraphs. The first paragraph will be the abstract. The second should be supporting data. The third paragraph should be the conclusion. The supporting data may be in tables, graphs, etc. The body of the abstract should be limited to 2000 characters or less.
When submitting a poster for the AAMD Annual Meeting, the first author must be a practicing medical dosimetrist or a student that is currently attending a JRCERT accredited medical dosimetry educational program.
For abstracts submitted by medical dosimetry students, a signed letter from the Program Director or a CMD co-author must accompany the submission that indicates the poster was reviewed by this person before the student submission.
You are being asked to provide three (3) learner outcomes.
