Research, Innovations and Clinical Vignettes – Scientific Abstract and Poster Competition

The Society of Hospital Medicine is now accepting proposals for the 2019 Scientific Abstract and Poster Competition, known as Research, Innovations and Clinical Vignettes (RIV). This is one of the most popular events at SHM’s Annual Conference, and enables hospitalists from across the country to discuss emerging science and clinical cases, share feedback and make valuable professional connections. Many of the cutting-edge abstracts that are first presented at SHM’s RIV sessions go on to be published in respected medical journals.

The competition features more than 1,700 applicants vying for approximately 900 poster spots. Plenary and oral sessions are chosen from the pool of abstracts prior to the meeting, and their authors are invited to present on-site at HM19.

Depending on the decision of the reviewers, your abstract could be selected for a poster, oral, or plenary presentation. Before submitting your abstract, please download and carefully review the RIV Guidelines and the Acknowledgement of Authorship and Responsibilities statements. You will be held accountable for understanding and adhering to the information contained in these resources.
