American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Owen H. Wangensteen Scientific Forum

Scientific Forum ePoster session

The Scientific e-Poster Presentations is a forum of more than 500 posters showcasing timely, innovative information and findings on original scientific research, surgical procedures, practices, and approaches. 

Abstracts submitted under this program were reviewed and selected for presentation by the Scientific Forum Committee. The Scientific Forum program provides a platform for scientific and surgical researchers across all levels of training and experience, including junior scientific investigators—surgery residents, medical students, surgeons who have recently completed their training—to present their original research work before a national audience for the first time. More than 1200 abstracts will be presented Monday through Wednesday.

In addition to the traditional oral presentations, the Forum is offering “Quick Shot” abstract presentations (less than four minutes in length) in select sessions.
