OSU Hospital Medicine and Med-Peds Symposium
The OSU Hospital Medicine and Med-Peds Symposium is annual regional conference hosted by the Ohio State Division of Hospital Medicine, focused on high yield topics important in caring for hospitalized patients. This highly rated event features speakers from across the country providing expertise on inpatient management. This year's event will feature a special Med/Peds track focusing on care transitions that can benefit both hospitalists and outpatient physicians.
Given the continued COVID-19 outbreak, our 2020 OSU Hospital Medicine Symposium will be held virtually for two half-day sessions on Oct. 2 and 3. Each session will feature a keynote presentation followed by three breakout topics. Registration for both sessions will enable you to receive a recorded copy of the presentations for future use.
Clinical Vignette Abstract Competition
The 2021 conference includes a poster competition for medical students and residents for Clinical Vignettes and Quality Improvement or Clinical Research Projects. We encourage all students and residents across the region who wish to present Clinical Vignette cases or Quality Improvement or Clinical Research projects with relevance to the care of a hospitalized adult or pediatric patient or general medicine to apply. We will consider abstracts that are submitted to other conferences as well.
The deadline for abstract submission is July 31, 2021. Those accepted will be notified by early September 2021 and invited to participate in the poster competition at the symposium. The poster presentations will be conducted electronically. The presenters will stream a short presentation of their case and judges will be given time for questions. The presentations are scheduled for the morning of Oct. 2nd, 2021. All students and residents accepted for poster presentation will have the registration fee for the symposium waived. There are prizes for the winning posters. Participation in all of the symposium is encouraged, though not required to participate.
The posters will be evaluated, and winners chosen on the day of the symposium. Participants will use live streaming to present and watch the poster competition. The poster presentations will be evaluated for their significance, relevance and teaching value, visual presentation and the effectiveness of the oral presentation.
Students or Residents with questions about preparing their abstracts and posters are encouraged to reach out to Dr. Eric Nolan at Eric.Nolan@osumc.edu.
