Trauma Paper Competition Call for Abstracts Announced

The Ohio Committee on Trauma is pleased to announce a Call for Abstracts for their 2014 Trauma Paper Competition.

The competition is open to all general surgery residents, surgical specialty residents, and trauma fellows, but medical students are not eligible. The deadline for entries is Friday, September 5.  Entries received after that date will not be considered.

To be eligible for presentation at the national level, abstracts submitted may have been previously presented but not published as full papers in any peer-reviewed journal before March 2015. As a condition of submission, the contestant agrees to present their work on Monday, October 13, 2014, at the OCOT Fall Meeting in Cleveland if selected for the competition.

The judges will select one Clinical Science winner and one Basic Science winner and both winners will be required to submit their paper for presentation at the Regional Committee on Trauma’s Trauma Paper Competition in Chicago.  Each winning participant will have travel expenses related to the meeting paid for by the Ohio Committee on Trauma.
