SHM Scientific Abstracts: The Research, Innovations, and Clinical Vignettes (RIV) Resource Center

The Society of Hospital Medicine’s (SHM) Scientific Abstract and poster competition, also known as Research, Innovations, and Clinical Vignettes (RIV), is one of the most popular events at SHM's annual meeting. It enables hospitalists from across the country to discuss emerging science and clinical cases, share feedback, and make valuable professional connections.

Upon entering the competition, you will compete with more than 1,600 applicants for approximately 900 poster spots to be displayed at SHM’s annual meeting. To improve the likelihood of acceptance, please review the submission guidelines and resources prior to submitting your abstract.

This year, SHM is partnering with a new abstract submission site, CadmiumCD. To ensure success, SHM strongly recommends that you complete your submission well ahead of the deadline of Sunday, December 3, 2017, at 11:59p.m. EST.

Submission opens on September 8, 2017.
