2020 Poster Abstract Submission 

Poster Abstract Deadline Monday, July 13, 2020

As an organization, MAACME fully supports the ACCME’s Commendation Criterion 33, which states “The provider engages in research and scholarship.” MAACME’s annual meeting provides an ideal, peer-reviewed forum in which to display posters presenting the results of scholarly inquiries related to CME. Doing so may enhance your organization’s chances of winning accreditation with commendation. You, or someone else at your organization, may also be able to win points toward earning or renewing the CHCP credential.


If you have an idea for a poster that you would like to display at the MAACME Annual Conference, September 30 to October 1, 2020, please complete the online  submission form by end of day Monday, July 13. A peer review committee will review all submissions and provide first authors with selection decisions by August 3, 2020.

Please review these submission guidelines:

1. Only posters submitted by the online form will be considered.

2. The deadline for submissions is end of day Monday, July 13.

3. The theme for this year’s meeting is “Honoring the Past, Living in the Present, Looking Forward to the Future." Posters on topics that align with this theme are especially welcome.

Other possible topics include:

 Reporting Outcomes

Assessing Educational Needs

Commercial Support Trends
Accreditation and Compliance Issues

CME Potpourri (anything that does not fit in the other categories).


4. Your poster should be no larger than 54 inches x 36 inches.  It should tell the story of your scholarly inquiry. Author(s)/presenter(s) are responsible for bringing their poster in a final format ready to be displayed and any additional aids they by wish to utilize. MAACME will provide a display board for each poster.
