Abstract Competition

Each year at its Annual Conference, SHM hosts a Scientific Abstract and Poster Competition, known as Research, Innovations and Clinical Vignettes (RIV).

This is one of the most popular events at the conference, enabling hospitalists from across the country to discuss emerging scientific and clinical cases, share feedback and make valuable professional connections. Many cutting-edge abstracts that are first presented at SHM’s RIV sessions go on to be published in respected medical journals.

The competition features more than 1,700 applicants vying for approximately 1,000 poster spots. Plenary and oral presentation sessions are chosen from the pool of abstracts prior to the conference, and their authors are invited to present on-site.

Depending on the reviewers’ decision, an abstract could be selected for a poster, oral presentation or plenary session. Before submitting an abstract, please download and carefully review the RIV Guidelines and the Acknowledgement of Authorship and Responsibilities statements. You will be held accountable for understanding and adhering to the information contained in these resources.

Submission for the competition opens each year at the beginning of September and closes the first week of December. Authors are notified of acceptance in January.
