The 35th Annual Women in Medicine 2018 Conference & Retreat is seeking Plenary, Workshop and Poster/Research Presentations!
Plenary Sessions: Plenary Sessions are from 45 to 60 minutes in length and will be the only presentation offered during that time period. Preference will be given to proposals that relate to medical topics. Panel presentations are also possible as plenary sessions.
Workshops: There will be multiple workshops scheduled concurrently. These will be 40 to 45 minutes in length. Presentations may focus on any topic of interest to lesbian physicians or their partners.
Longitudinal Workshops: We are seeking leaders for traditional small group sessions. These sessions tend to be 30 to 45 minutes in length and will be offered several times during the conference to maintain continuity of discussion. Leaders are not required to be trained facilitators and newcomers are welcome.
Topics of Interest: Opioid Dependency and Management, Pain Management in Pediatrics, Aging, Neurologic Evaluations and Care, EMR and Time Management, Nutrition, Food Additives, Diet Management for Food Intolerances, Cultural Competency, Racism, Under the Radar Homophobia From Patients and Staff, Overprescribing of Drugs Like Antibiotics, Surviving an Independent Practice in Today’s Environment of Consolidation, Health and Social Justice Topics, Mental Health Topics, Trans Health and Wellbeing, and Physician Wellbeing and Burnout, General Medical Issues-Pneumonia, Sepsis, Migraines, etc.
Attention all Medical Students and Residents:
- Do you have something that you would like to present at WIM?
- Do you have preliminary data on a project and want to know how to go forward?
- Do you have completed research that you would like to have critiqued?
- Do you have what you think is a good idea for a research project but lack support for it?
WE HAVE SOLUTIONS FOR YOU: Rather than having you stand in front of a white board with a poster, we are holding a special session dedicated to these student presentations. You will each have no more than 10 minutes to present your material (no more than 5 PowerPoint slides-one of which should include a question you have about your project that you hope will generate productive feedback from the audience). You will present your research findings (preliminary, early results, or even preliminary planning for your project is acceptable) during a plenary session. If selected, presenters will be provided with formal letters to their training programs to help secure time and funding for the conference.
