Abstract Guidelines - 2023

  • Only abstracts submitted via the online submission form will be considered.
  • More than one abstract per presenting author may be submitted.
  • Abstracts that have been published or presented at other venues may be submitted. Abstracts presented at previous Roseman Research Symposia, however, are not eligible for submission unless you are submitting an abstract of recent developments obtained after the work was presented.
  • Research categories for posters and/or podium presentations may include:
    • Basic sciences
    • Clinical
    • Scholarship of teaching and learning
    • Public health
    • Other (e.g. administrative services, best practices, quality improvement, continuing professional development, social and administrative sciences, library and information science)
  • Abstracts should be organized into four sections: Purpose, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. In some cases, Results and Conclusions may be blank. Abstracts should not exceed a total (i.e. all four sections) of 350 words.
  • Posters must be professional in appearance, provide project information (e.g. title, authors, abstract components), charts and figures as appropriate.
  • The size of the poster should not exceed 4’ x 6’ (4’ x 3’ non-vinyl posters preferred).
  • Student and resident posters will be evaluated as part of the competition, although a presenter can opt out of participation. Only one poster per presenter will be judged.
  • At least one author must be available to present the work on the day of the symposium.
  • Podium presentations will be presented in a PowerPoint format. Presenters will be allotted 15 minutes for presentation and questions (12 minute presentation with 3 minutes for Q & A).
