FIT Open Mic
How It Works
In the fall, ACMT invites all first-year and second-year Fellows-in-Training as well as Medical Residents and Students, to submit an abstract of a presentation for the Open Mic session. 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. Presenters are chosen by a panel of evaluators. Proposals are evaluated on content and originality.
A complete proposal application includes:
- Abstract (250 words describing your topic)
- Objective 1
- Objective 2
- Objective 3
Selected presenters are required to give their presentation in an Ignite style. This format creates intense and fast presentations with sharp, concise messages. Each presentation must be 5 minutes long and have the following format:
- 20 slides
- 15 seconds per slide
- Slides automatically advance after 15 seconds
This is an example of an Ignite® talk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGENcskRGRk&feature=youtu.be
