Reminder: Ethical conduct of scholarly work requires all coauthors to read and approve the content of the abstract.
NOTE: All students, residents, and fellows who submit an abstract are REQUIRED to identify a faculty member who has served as their mentor and provided oversight on their research. After the trainee submits their abstract, the mentor will receive an email notification and will be required to review and approve of the abstract before final submission. There is also an option for the mentor to recommend revisions. In that case, we ask that the mentor communicate those changes directly to the trainee. The trainee should then revise and resubmit their abstract. This process is meant to assure that high quality abstracts are submitted.
***You are a trainee if you are a student, resident, fellow, Post Doc, staff and other.***
