Join us in San Diego for the 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting and Symposia!

The ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is an opportunity for specialists in the field to gather together to learn from the cutting-edge research of their peers. After a 2-year hiatus, ACMT is back for a fully in-person meeting in 2023, complete with all the networking and social opportunities that make our events so rich with engagement. In addition, ACMT will mark the 30th anniversary since its founding!

The day preceding ASM, ACMT will have it’s Pre-Symposium on “Self-Harm, Suicidality, and the Poisoned Patient: The Intersection of Toxicology and Mental Health” on March 30th. And the day before that, on March 29th, we are delighted to announce that our sister organization, the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology (AACT) will be joining us with their own half-day Pre-Symposium “DEI in Toxicology: What it Means for Patients and Learners.”

Ways to Participate

The ACMT Research Committee welcomes all types of original research of interest to medical toxicologists and their patients. Our goal is to enrich the attendee experience by offering presentations that share the latest science and clinical practices from the front lines of medical toxicology.

Four ways to present:

  • Platform presentations 
  • Lightning oral presentations
  • Moderated poster forums
  • Poster-only sessions

ACMT will accept abstracts from September 1 – November 15, 2022. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed and acceptance will be based on content, available space, and overall program balance. All authors will be notified via email in mid-December. 

Abstract Guidelines

Evaluation Criteria

Submit An Abstract: https://app.oxfordabstracts.com/stages/4189/submitter

The ACMT Open Mic Competition offers medical toxicology fellows-in-training, residents, and medical students the opportunity to give a lecture in a national forum where experienced speakers can offer insight on both content and delivery. This session has been shown to be a valuable ACMT professional development feature.

How to Apply

ACMT invites all fellows, residents, and medical students to submit an abstract of a presentation for the Open Mic Competition. 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

Submission Deadline: Thursday, December 15, 2022


How It Works

After initial review of all submissions, a select number of abstracts will be selected for presentation at the 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting on March 31 – April 2, 2023 in San Diego, CA.

This meeting will be fully in-person. Presenters will be expected to register for the meeting and present in-person on the main stage in San Diego. There will be no virtual option.

During the Open Mic session, 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

More information on the Ignite format can be found here

For more examples of skilled, intellectually stimulating talks, we refer speakers to the TED series of lectures.

Questions 

If you have any questions, please contact ACMT at events@acmt.net.

Two $1500 Travel Scholarships to be awarded as part of the Shark Tank Competition!

The MedTox Shark Tank Research Forum is an opportunity for Fellows-in-Training, Residents, and Medical Students to obtain expert input during the formative stage of a research project. The session objective is to offer valuable insight that could strengthen their proposed research project.

How to Apply

We invite applicants to submit an abstract of a research proposal to this forum. The proposal could represent a planned research project (prior to IRB submission), a proposal awaiting IRB approval, or something that is further along, perhaps into a pilot data collection phase.

To be eligible, you must be a Fellow-in-Training, Resident or Medical Student. The abstract should include:

  1. Title of Presentation
  2. Aims
  3. Significance and Innovation
  4. Research Approach (Methods) and Timeline
  5. Major Limitations/Questions

Submission Deadline: Thursday, December 15, 2022


How It Works

After initial review of all submissions, a select number of abstracts will be selected for presentation at the 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting on March 31 – April 2, 2023 in San Diego, CA.

This meeting will be fully in-person. Presenters will be expected to register for the meeting and present in-person on the main stage in San Diego. There will be no virtual option.

During the MedTox Shark Tank Session, the selected applicants will be given 10 minutes for an oral presentation that emphasizes the crafting of a study hypothesis, proposed study methodology, data collection, and analytic techniques. Brief and relevant background material is acceptable, but the presentation should focus on the project itself.

The presentations will be made to a panel of senior medical toxicology faculty in an environment geared towards constructive comments and feedback. The panel will select the top two presentations and award each $1500 towards travel to present their research results as a poster, moderated poster, lightning oral or platform at either the 2024 or 2025 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting. NOTE: the award is to fund the travel not the project itself.

The MedTox Shark Tank FIT Research Forum provides many benefits to the trainee including:

  • Public speaking experience 
  • Constructive critique of research ideas and methodology 
  • Exposure to other creative research ideas
  • Networking among peers and prospective employers
  • Presentation is a justifiable addition to an academic curriculum vitae
  • Opportunity for travel funding to return to the 2024 or 2025 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting to present research results

Questions 

If you have any questions, please contact the ACMT at events@acmt.net.

The Education Committee invites Fellows-in-Training and ACMT Members to submit a case of a unique or interesting patient for presentation at the “MedTox Case Panel: Case-Based Conundrums” taking place during the 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting, March 31 – April 2, 2022 in San Diego, CA.

Three cases will be selected for presentation and discussion by a panel of Medical Toxicology specialists. All cases will be considered, but there is a specific interest in complex or controversial management issues encountered by the medical toxicologist.

The 2023 ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting will be fully in-person. Presenters will be expected to register for the meeting and present in-person on the main stage in San Diego. There will be no virtual option.

Application Guidelines:

Please submit a 500 word max. abstract of the case that includes:

  1. Initial Clinical Presentation
  2. Hospital Course
  3. Challenges or controversies surrounding management

If selected, participants will have 10-15 minutes to present the case, leaving 15-20 minutes of discussion by the panel and the audience.

This is a great opportunity for fellows and junior faculty to gain experience speaking at a national conference.

Submission Deadline: Thursday, December 15, 2022
