AATS Centennial

2017 Perioperative/Team-Based Care Poster Competition

The AATS Perioperative/Team-Based Care Poster Competition provides an opportunity for non-MD cardiothoracic surgical team professionals to participate in a scientific poster competition at the 2017 AATS Centennial in Boston, Massachusetts, April 29 - May 3, 2017. The posters should reflect the participant’s research findings and/or new and innovative ideas for successful approaches in the management of the cardiothoracic patient.

To be eligible for the program, non-MD cardiothoracic surgical team professionals (NPs, PAs, Perfusionists, and RNs) must submit their abstract electronically on the AATS Perioperative/Team-Based Care abstract submission website. Abstracts and posters may contain material that has been previously presented. Abstracts will be reviewed and selected by the AATS Perioperative/Team-Based Care Review Committee and successful applicants will be notified in mid-February 2017.

The Competition will be held during the AATS Welcome Reception on Sunday, April 30th from 5:00pm - 7:00pm with all successful applicants in attendance. The winning presenter will receive a $1,000 stipend to support travel and accommodations to the Centennial and will be announced during the Tuesday, May 2nd Plenary Session and in the AATS Thoracic Surgery News and The Daily News publications.

If you have any questions regarding the Perioperative/Team-Based Care Poster Competition or the abstract submission process please contact the Association’s Administrative Office via email at admin@aats.org.
