I have attended 3 of these and found them very rewarding. They are intense as there are podium sessions all day and poster sessions in 2 evenings.

There is a science track and a clinical track and both are both in categories with several brief ( 20 minutes or so) presentations in a session relating to the topic.

The posters are available to look at during the day but in the evening sessions the poster presenters are there to discuss their work. In spite of the dismissive comments you may have read elsewhere they are not “ just a bunch of post docs”. Cu-ATSM was a poster in 2017, last year there were several posters on post marketing experiences with radicava, mgh attendings and a top senior scientist at NIH have all had posters that I remember.

Anyone who wants more information on the experience let me know

I wish I could go this year. I thought about it but it is too far

Thank you for the program R.
