Objective: Review challenging clinical scenarios presented by surgical trainees. Attendees are encouraged to interact with the presenters and panelists in an “M&M” format.
Description: This is meant to be a dynamic, interactive session where residents present their most spectacular patient experiences in a format similar to morbidity and mortality conference. This is modeled after the session at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress where panelists are encouraged to challenge the presenter and fellow panelists as the case is chronologically unveiled. Cases that present particularly challenging scenarios in regards to clinical decision-making are encouraged.
Format: Submissions will be accepted in the standard Abstract format using the same criteria as allowed for other AHS abstract submissions. Presentations, however, are in a PowerPoint format and we encourage liberal use of de-identified imaging, pictures, and video to compliment the clinical information when possible. To allow ample time for interactive discussion and questioning, each presenter will be allotted 20 minutes (x6 presenters = 2hr session).
Presenters: Presenters can be residents, fellows, or medical students and must be indicated as the first author in the submitted abstract. If accepted, the first author will be awarded a $500 travel scholarship from the AHS to attend the meeting.
Panelists: The panel will include 4-5 members at various stages in their career. Given the level of training of the young presenters, there should be an emphasis on safe/conservative approaches.
