Clinical Pathological Case Presentation Competition (CPC)
2021 NACCT in Atlanta, GA
October 16-18, 2021
After an unexpected hiatus last year, the American College of Medical Toxicology is proud to announce the 22nd Clinical Pathological Case Presentation Competition (or CPC) in association with the 2021 NACCT meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. The CPC is expected to be scheduled on the evening of the first day of the Main Congress, Saturday, October 16th. Exact scheduling to be determined.
For the first time, ACMT is now accepting CPC case submissions from outside of Toxicology Fellowship programs. Cases may now be submitted by any academic toxicology mentor/mentee pairing, as long as the senior member (CPC Case Discussant) in this relationship is an ACMT physician member who has an academic supervisory role in relation to the junior member (CPC Case Presenter). Thus, the senior member will be an Attending Physician in a Toxicology Fellowship and/or a Residency program proximate to toxicology, and the junior member will be a Fellow or a Resident Physician. Although it is likely that participating junior members will be from Tox, EM, Peds, or Occ Med, they can represent any specialty so long as they are a physician working with an ACMT member and they are submitting a Tox case.
We are asking for challenging poisoning cases, prepared in a format suitable to present as an unknown to another CPC participant. In return, you will be given a similarly vexing case with which to generate a differential diagnosis, educate the audience, and hopefully also to solve. Out of all submissions received, an ACMT educational sub-committee will choose the top three cases for the CPC competition.
How to Submit
To submit your case, read the following guidelines and submit the submission form to Jeff Suchard via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Submission Deadline: June 1, 2021. Earlier submission is greatly appreciated. We look forward to receiving your case.
If you have any questions about how the CPC works, or if a case you have would be good for the CPC, or anything else, please contact Jeff Suchard via e-mail (email@example.com).
