Tips from Previous Submitters

Needs some last-minute guidance on crafting your abstract? We published a series of blog posts with advice from those with first-hand experience. Check out some of their tips:


“Send your draft to a mentor or your attending. It is always helpful to get another set of eyes for editing, particularly if you’re a trainee.”

Alex Zhornitskiy, MD

“Abstract titles are like the preface of a novel: informative, clear and every word matters. It’s the first thing a reviewer sees, so make a good first impression and hook the reader with a strong title.”

Danny Issa, MD

“Do not put identifying information in the abstract title or body. This deliberately breaks the blind.”

Peter D.R. Higgins, MD, PhD, MSc, AGAF
