The call for abstracts for the 2023 meeting is closed.
The USPHS Scientific & Training Symposium’s Scientific Track Sessions focus on the measurable impacts achieved by USPHS Commissioned Corps officers and our public health partners and how these efforts protect, promote, and advance the health and safety of our nation.
Abstract submissions of original research, education, practice, policy changes, program evaluation, case studies, and development of guidance or recommendations are welcome.
The Symposium’s Scientific Track Sessions are distinct in that selected presentations must demonstrate adherence to scientific methodology. While any topic relevant to the Symposium theme is welcome, all submitted abstracts must include a background section, structured methodology, clear results (or lessons learned), and conclusions or recommendations for future policy, programs, clinical practice, or research. Abstracts will be scored lower if these key components are missing or incomplete. For further guidance, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Writing Effective Scientific Abstracts for the USPHS Symposium document.
The deadline to submit an abstract was December 16, 2022.
