Call for Abstracts & Hawley H. Seiler Residents Award Competition | April 4, 2022

The Southern Thoracic Surgical Association is currently accepting abstracts for its upcoming 69th Annual Meeting, which will be held November 9-12 at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Cardiothoracic and general surgery residents are invited to submit abstracts to be considered for the 2022 Hawley H. Seiler Residents Award Competition.

Named for STSA Past President and Founder, Hawley H. Seiler, MD, this award is presented annually to the resident who most excels in their manuscript and oral presentation at the STSA Annual Meeting. The 2022 Hawley H. Seiler Residents Award recipient will receive $500, a personalized plaque, and their name will be engraved on a permanent plaque to be displayed at future STSA Annual Meetings. The recipient will be announced at the 2022 Dinner Gala. Residents participating in the competition are eligible for reduced-price tickets to attend this event.

You may review the STSA 69th Annual Meeting abstract submission guidelines at the beginning of the submission process and prior to selecting your submission type.

The collegiality, fun, and scientific value of the STSA Annual Meeting are unmatched, and the Southern is an exceptional forum for disseminating your work. Oral abstract presentations are to be submitted for publication consideration in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery, which has a circulation of more than 8,000 subscribers. Should your abstract be selected for presentation, details outlining instructions for submitting your manuscript to the Annals of Thoracic Surgery will be provided at a later date.

The deadline to submit abstracts is April 4, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
