virtual meeting banner 2020

Our Annual Meeting tagline has always been ‘Where science meets patient care’ and that won’t be changing for 2020. We are excited to invite our CV Leaders from across our great state to join us for a stimulating virtual series: Annual Meeting Week 2020. We will be featuring five national speakers for live morning webinars from 7:00 – 8:00AM, and then five additional hours of educational content to be released on August 22nd to watch at your leisure.

We’ve recast our meeting so that you can get the newest information to bring to your daily practice. New therapies, up-to-date diagnostic techniques and cutting-edge research, even in this COVID era, which have never been more important for heart care.  Check out the entire agenda here.

Register Today!  for access to all the education that will be the 2020 FL Chapter Annual Meeting.

PhD Translational Research Competition
PhD Students and Postdoctoral Fellows are invited to submit research abstracts and case studies in the PhD Translational Research Competition to be held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Florida Chapter of the American College of Cardiology. See eligibility requirements below.

Timing and Submission 
Abstracts and case studies may represent work in progress or may have been previously submitted for publication or presentation at a national meeting in 2020. Further, abstracts or case studies submitted in this competition are not precluded from submission for future publication or presentation. The PhD Translational Research Competition is part of a regional meeting and, clearly, will not preclude the PhD Student or Postdoctoral Fellow from submitting the abstract in a future endeavor. Please note a maximum of four submissions will be considered per first author. Abstracts and case studies are to be submitted electronically via Oxford Abstracts by June 19, 2020. Paper and emailed copies will not be accepted.

Eligible Competitors 
All PhD Students or Postdoctoral Fellows are eligible to enter the competition who are enrolled in a training program in Florida. 
(Those with an MD/MBBS but who are not in a Florida CV medicine fellowship training program are also eligible.) 

Review, Selection and Notification 
Submissions will be reviewed by a Chapter panel of cardiologists and PhD scientists. Selected abstracts and case studies will be chosen for poster presentation via the virtual meeting. Presenters will be notified on or after July 10, 2020.

Additional Considerations 
PhD Students and Postdoctoral fellows entering the competition must have significantly participated in the research endeavor (to be confirmed by their program).
