2016 Annual Meeting

Dear Colleagues:

We cordially invite you to submit an abstract for consideration of an oral or poster presentation at the American College of Mohs Surgery 48th Annual Meeting taking place April 28 – May 1, 2016 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida. 

The 2016 Annual Meeting will include two categories of abstracts:

1. Scientific abstracts: Original research that addresses the most urgent needs of our patients and the ACMS. Scientific abstracts with a primary author who is a fellow-in-training or who is in his or her first year of practice after completing a fellowship in Micrographic Surgery & Dermatologic Oncology will be eligible for the Tromovitch Award Competition.

2. Rapid Pearls abstracts (NEW!): Two-minute anecdotal pearls regarding Mohs surgery technique, frozen section pathology, reconstructive surgery, or practice management.

The deadline for abstract submissions is 11:59 pm PST on Wednesday, January 13, 2016.

In addition to abstract submissions, fellows-in-training are invited to submit a case for the Clinicopathologic Case Competition: fellows-in-training may submit clinicopathologic slides and photographs of Mohs cases that have uncommon or rare pathology or that illustrate prototypical diagnostic challenges and keys to diagnosis or tumor detection. Case submissions must be received by the ACMS office by March 1, 2016.   

The Scientific Program Committee has broadened abstract submission opportunities with the goals of involving more members in the Annual Meeting and encouraging the highest quality of presentations. To learn more about each of these opportunities:

Your participation is crucial to ensure the continued success of our specialty’s premier meeting. Please encourage fellows-in-training to submit an abstract for the Tromovitch Award and/or a case for the Clinicopathologic Case Competition.

We look forward to your contribution and hope to see you in Orlando!
