Multiple applications will be accepted up to a maximum of three abstracts per presenting author. Oral presentations will be 10 minutes exactly, 8 minutes to present and 2 minutes for questions. Trainees presenting posters will be given 3 minutes to verbally summarise their work for the judges. Posters should be printed as A2 size only, if trainees bring a poster bigger than the required size, they may not be able to present on the day.
All abstracts submitted will be considered for both oral and poster presentations.
Once a trainee has submitted their abstract, it will go through a shortlisting process. If the submission is successful, the authors will be notified of their category and presentation time, and invited to register for the event. All presentations will be judged by a panel and a prize will be given to the winner of each category.
Speakers and judges in attendance will be from key stakeholder groups including Foundation School Directors and Foundation Programme Directors from across the country as well as delegates from a variety of organisations such as the UKFPO, GMC, HEE, MDU, MPS, NICE, BMA, HQIP and NCEPOD and the Royal Colleges.
