FCACC FIT Abstract and Case Event 2023

Timing and Abstract Submission 

Abstracts & Cases may represent work in progress or may have been previously submitted for publication or presentation at a national meeting in 2022.  Further, abstracts submitted in this competition are not precluded from submission for future publication or presentation. The  competition is part of a regional meeting and, clearly, will not preclude the fellow from submitting the abstract in a future endeavor. Please note: a maximum of two submissions will be considered per first author. If more than two are submitted, only the first two submissions will be reviewed. Submissions must be made electronically via Oxford Abstracts by January 10. Paper and emailed copies will not be accepted.

Eligible Competitors 
All adult and pediatric cardiology fellows are eligible who are enrolled in a training program in Florida, provided they have been a fellow since July 1, 2022.
Only first authors, FITs, may present the research.

Abstract Review, Selection and Notification 
Submissions will be reviewed by a Chapter panel of cardiologists. Finalists a will be notified on or after January 6, 2023.

Prizes and Funding 
In addition to the opportunity to present their research, the FITs with the top scoring submissions will receive a $200 credit on their room at the JW Marriott Turnberry.

Additional Considerations 
FITs must have significantly participated in the research endeavor (to be confirmed by the fellowship program).
