Poster abstracts for the MUSC Global Health Week are being accepted in all areas of global health. The abstract should be written in a narrative form and not include tables, charts, or graphs. The abstract must not exceed 300 words, excluding the title. Submitting authors are required to attend the event and present their poster, as well as obtain pre-approval from any co-authors before submitting the abstract.
To be considered for acceptance, abstracts must be well-organized, concise, clear and well-written. They should outline the problem being addressed and the approach taken to solve it. While providing preliminary results is recommended but not required, results will be required for the final poster. It is essential that authors establish a clear connection between their work and global health outcomes.
The committee will evaluate submissions based on originality, presentation, relevance, quality, and clarity, and recommend which ones should be included in the poster session. Authors will receive notification of acceptance by March 29 with detailed instructions on how to prepare their posters.
