|Diabetes Research Forum|
The EFF Research Meeting is a Continuing Medical Education Program for Junior Faculty and Fellows organized in conjunction with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. The next program will be held on February 6-8 in Dallas, Texas. Selection for this program is based on EFF grant applications and availability. If all grant awardees cannot attend we then ask for applications from fellows. Fellows considered for this forum will be contacted with a formal invitation. Should EFF find openings we will send a request of applications to the program directors.
In this intensive research meeting fellows are given the opportunity to present their fellowship projects to experts of the field. The first day allows fellows a practice session to hone presentation skills for the following day. The next day sessions begin bright and early with an introduction from Dr. Mark Stolar. Over the next few hours fellows present their oral presentations with expert faculty providing feedback and valuable critiques. Expert faculty also present on a trending topic in Diabetes. The day ends with a poster session from fellows and their projects. On the next day there are expert faculty presentations and then breakout sessions. In these sessions fellows are paired 5:1 with an expert faculty member. Each group is tasked with creating a research project from start to finish. Projects are then presented the final day of the meeting and a winning group is selected.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Endocrine Fellows Foundation. The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
