Following a comprehensive review of the Series I-III consultations, the Royal College has released the draft Physician Competency Framework (Series IV).

Again this year, ICRE will feature virtual poster sessions as part of the 2015 program.  In just a few clicks from the comfort of your own home, our virtual posters allow you to read an abstract, look at a poster and watch a video of the presenting author.

For researchers, the benefits of the virtual poster sessions are endless. In particular, the opportunity to engage with professionals from around the world broadens influence beyond the walls of the poster hall and elevates them to an international level.

We are pleased to offer this engaging, and innovative element within the ICRE 2015 program. We will actively share the content on our social media feeds, and through the ICRE blog to attract national and international attention to your research.

All presenters whose posters are accepted for ICRE 2015 are invited to prepare a virtual poster in addition to their physical poster that will be presented on-site at ICRE 2015.

Abstracts can be submitted to either the “Research Abstract” or “What Works Abstracts” category, and in both cases, preference will be given to those submissions addressing the conference theme of Residency Rediscovered: Transforming Training for Modern Care. Remember, all accepted ICRE research paper abstracts will be published in the Journal of Graduate Medical Education.
