Utah Global Surgery Symposium

Abstract & Op-Ed Submission

We invite you to submit abstracts or an Op-Ed for presentation at the national Utah Global Surgery Symposium!

In order to maximize the number of participants in the Utah Global Surgery Symposium, each individual may submit up to two abstracts and one Op-ed for consideration. We will limit the number of abstracts that an individual first author may present to one presentation.The abstracts will be accepted in a rolling fashion, with notifications emailed to the submitting member every other Monday in February in order to facilitate time for attendees to coordinate travel plans. The decision dates on which emails will be sent are as follows:
February 3rd, 17th, and March 9th.

 

Abstracts accepted for presentation will be eligible for awards determined by the review committee. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide travel scholarships. 

 

For inquiries related to abstract submission or decisions, please email gssanationalsymposium@gmail.com.
