SSRC Overview

Southwestern States Residency Conference planning committee created this portion of the site to assist you in successfully preparing your abstract submission as well as platform and poster presentations. Abstracts are required for all platform presentations and will be used accordingly if residents decided to participate in the optional poster presentation portion. To ensure proper formatting of your documents, please read all the instructions carefully as instructions have changed for this year. Registered names must match all submissions including abstracts, slides, handouts and posters.

Residents who are interested may present both a platform and poster presentation at the conference. For poster presentations, Residents are allowed AND encouraged to present another research project they have completed during their residency year (e.g. MUE).
