Dear Colleague:

We cordially invite you to submit an abstract for consideration of an oral or poster presentation at the 54th American College of Mohs Surgery Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania taking place May 12-15 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown.

New for 2022, the Scientific Program Committee has expanded the ‘Rapid Pearl Abstract Session’ to three sessions: Pathology Pearls, Oncology/Reconstruction Pearls, and Practice Management Pearls, to broaden 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 the abstract opportunities, please see the details in the Call for Abstracts.

The 2022 Annual Meeting will include three 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 their first year of practice after completing a fellowship in Micrographic Surgery & Dermatologic Oncology will be eligible for the Tromovitch Award Competition.
  2. Clinical Abstracts: original research that addresses a clinical practice gap or challenge.
  3. EXPANDED Sessions! Rapid Pearl Abstracts: two-minute anecdotal pearls in the categories of Pathology Pearls, Oncology/Reconstruction Pearls, and Practice Management Pearls.  Rapid Pearl presenters must submit their final slides in handout format, with the exception of video files, for availability in the Annual Meeting mobile app.

The deadline for abstract submissions is 11:59 pm PST on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

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. Submissions must be received at the ACMS office by Friday, February 11, 2022.

 

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.

If you have questions about the proposed abstract or the submission process, please contact us at info@mohscollege.org.

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