MedTox Shark Tank: FIT Research Forum

sharks.jpgThe long-standing ellows-in-Training (FIT) Research Forum will take on a new look for 2018—MedTox Shark Tank. This research forum is an opportunity for fellows to obtain expert input during the formative stage of their research projects. First-year and second-year fellows are invited to submit an abstract of a research proposal to this forum. After initial review, eight proposals will be selected for presentation during the MedTox Shark Tank at the 2018 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting. Forum moderators will provide constructive comments and have $$$ to invest in each presentation. Two presenters that garner the most investment money will each receive $1,500 towards travel to the 2019 or 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting to present their research!

Fellows-in-Training Open Mic Competition

The FIT Open Mic Competition gives Fellows-in-Training the opportunity to give a lecture in a national forum where experienced speakers will offer insight on content and delivery. The competition is conducted in the exciting Ignite-style format, which provides fast and intense presentations with sharp, concise messages. Any topic relevant to medical toxicology is appropriate—historical topics, mystery cases, molecular mechanisms, educational development, etc. Above all, we are looking for engaging speakers and interesting presentations. Proposals will be evaluated on content and originality.
