This year's NESS Research Presentation Day will be held Tuesday, May 7, 2019, 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM, in the Fenway Room at the Waltham Woods Conference Center within the headquarters of the Massachusetts Medical Society in Waltham, Massachusetts. This event promotes the professional development of young surgeons from across New England, with prizes awarded for the best clinical and basic science presentations. Per NESS By-Laws, attendance at the spring resident and fellow research forum meets the Society's active participation requirement, so please consider attending the 2019 program.
Research Presentation Day award recipients will be selected in the categories of Clinical Research and Basic Science. All Award recipients will be slated for automatic poster presentation at the NESS 2018 Annual Meeting.
First Place recipients and runners-up will also have the option to have their abstracts reviewed by the NESS Program Committee for consideration of oral presentation (Podium, Brief, or Specialty Session) at the Annual Meeting. These authors will be notified of this option and will need to notify the NESS administrative offices of their willingness to have their work considered for NESS Annual Meeting oral presentation within two weeks of their selection as award recipients.
