The AATS Resident Poster Competition provides an opportunity for senior cardiothoracic surgery residents and/or congenital heart surgery fellows from around the world to represent their institution by presenting a scientific poster of their clinical/investigative research at the 2017 AATS Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, April 29th – May 3rd, 2017. Once committed, residents/fellows must provide the Cardiothoracic Residents Committee with a brief abstract regarding the research on their posters. Posters may include research that has been previously presented and/or published.
Residents/fellows’ institutions will receive a stipend of $500 to help offset the cost of travel and hotel accommodations at the 2017 AATS Annual Meeting. Additionally, every participant will receive complimentary registration to the Annual Meeting and access to a Skills Course on Saturday, April 30 and a Postgraduate course on Sunday, May 1. The respective training program will be responsible for the cost of any additional resident travel and accommodations.
