Submission Process
All oral and poster submissions must include an abstract of no more than 500 words. Abstracts should be written to be self-contained and to provide the technical substance required for the Education Committee to evaluate ‎the presentation’s contribution to the medical rehabilitation community. Abstracts lacking clear descriptions of ‎project outcomes and key takeaways for learners will not be accepted.
All authors submitting oral presentations must also provide three (3) specific learning objectives and indicate the key takeaways ‎‎— the practical tools, solutions and/or resources they will provide to attendees — in their application. 
Oral presentations range from 30 to 45 minutes, including time for questions.
Selection Process
After the portal has been closed, the AMRPA Education Committee will review the submissions. Shortly after, AMRPA will announce the abstracts and ‎posters chosen for presentation at the 2023 Fall Conference. Acceptance letters will be sent to the email address ‎provided in the abstract submission portal. Abstracts that have not been selected may be offered the ‎opportunity to be presented as a poster.

Submissions will be evaluated according to the following criteria:‎
  • Scientific Quality
  • Relevance, Constructiveness and Contribution to the Field of Medical Rehabilitation
  • Originality
  • Clarity and Organization
  • Freedom from Bias
