    Oral and Poster Presentations

    Research in Medical Education (RIME) Abstracts or Innovations in Medical Education Abstracts may be submitted for consideration for oral presentations or poster presentations.

    Purpose: RIME sessions serve to promote dissemination and discussion of research and its application to medical education.  Innovations in Medical Education presentations serve to promote dissemination and discussion of scholarly educational innovations and their applications to medical education.

    Time/Format: All submissions will be peer reviewed. Accepted submissions will be selected for either poster or oral presentation, by the NEGEA Abstract Subcommittee. Presenting authors should be familiar with the project and able to discuss relevant literature, present findings, and answer questions. An oral presentation is a 10-minute synopsis of the research, given by no more than two presenters, followed by a 5-minute question-and-answer period. Session moderators will keep presenters to a 15-minute limit to ensure all presenters have equal time. Poster presenters are expected to be available to discuss their research with session attendees at the poster session. 

    Proposals are limited to 300 words and must include the following sections:
    Section Review criteria for RIME Review criteria for Innovation in MedEd
    Purpose Clarity of research statement or research question Clarity of innovation’s objective or purpose, including what was novel or new
