Resident Scholarly Works Virtual Summit

Wednesday, JUNE 10 - Presentations all day long!  

Illinois Family Medicine Residents and Fellows are invited to compete in a statewide, online forum – no travel required!

  • Research may be completed or in-progress. We will have separate categories for each. 
  • Help Desk Answers Speed Round of 5-minute presentations 
  • Presentations are limited to a maximum 15 minutes (can be shorter). 
  • Residents/Fellows MUST submit their name and presentation title using our online registration link and indicate time blocks available to present. We will have morning, afternoon and early evening options. Registration deadline was May 20.
  • Presentation blocks will be offered all day between 9 am and 6 pm. IAFP staff will confirm the exact 20- minute window in that block two weeks prior to the webinar. 
  • All presentations (power point slides) and head shot photos must be submitted by June 2 for review or you will not be allowed to present. You may update your presentation after June 2 if you need to.

Live Presentations
Presenting residents will login to the virtual summit (we use GoToMeeting this year) and present live to a panel of anonymous reviewers as well as any resident or faculty that may login and observe. If you miss your scheduled start time, there will not be another opportunity to present.

  • Residents must be at your computer with the presentation slides open and ready on YOUR desktop. If you are using your computer microphone, please use a headset. It’s most recommended to dial in from a LAND LINE phone, not a cell phone. Residents are responsible for their own slides and computer connection. 
  • A Moderator introduces the researcher and passes control of the platform to the resident to start the presentation. Resident presenters advance their own slides from their computers. We will schedule an open practice time on the Tuesday prior to the webinar, for presenters who wish to test out the webinar platform from their computer in advance. 
  • Residents have up to 15 minutes to deliver the entire presentation. Presenters are limited to a maximum of 25 slides. There is a verbal 2-minute warning to help presenters in ending on time.
  • After the presentation, a 3-minute question and answer session follow with questions from two anonymous faculty reviewers. 
  • Presenters in the 15-minute presentations are scored on the quality of their research design, the quality of their slides, the relevance to family medicine, their verbal presentation and their responses to questions. 
  • Help Desk Answers are scored on their relevance of the question, the patient scenario to question walkover, their evidence the quality/clarity of their slides and their presentation skills. These presentations have a maximum of 10 slides.

**Residents who are not presenting are welcome to login on to observe the presentations! All members will be invited to register, log in and observe presentations.
** Consider live-streaming the virtual summit at your program so that residents and faculty can stop by and view at any time during their day!
