 The Education Committee invites ACMT members to submit proposals for presentations at the annual ACMT Educational Symposium, the Fellows-in-Training Lecture, at the 2018 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting to be held April 5-8, 2018 in Washington DC.

Session proposals should be for a 60-minute presentation to be delivered to fellows-in-training. Proposals will be reviewed by the ACMT Education Committee. As many of the submitted proposals in past years were excellent, yet not selected, re-submissions are encouraged.
