    For AMCAS, what's the format?

    Last name, first name. "Title." Name of Conference, location, Month day, year.???

    Would that be it?

    There was a book with abstracts.

    So would it be that format above?

    Also, for AMCAS what is my title?

    Am I both poster presenter and abstract author? Or just poster presenter?

    I would classify it under posters/presentation, but not sure if I am supposed to also include abstract author?

    Thanks <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Last year I had a bit more leeway (sp?) and since we could list unlimited post-secondary experiences, I listed each thing separately (once for poster presentation, once for abstract, once for attending conference) and then reference the other things in my paragraph.

    I realize you are much limited this year, and you should try to roll all of these experiences into one experience. So, my take on it is if you attended a conference/presented a poster/authored an abstract, you should list all related experiences under posters/presentation, but then in your paragraph, list that you also attended such-and-such conference and authored the abstract for the poster.

    The format you listed is what I used last year, but I also included other info, like co-authors, awards won at the poster session, travel awards won to attend the conference, the abstract info, etc.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I agree with ellerose - condense a research topic into one experience to save #'s. I combined all the abstracts, conferences, and presentations in one experience, since they were all on the same research.

    If all you have is a poster presentation, you may consider omitting it for now to save space, unless it was very special to you.

    I agree that you can combine it into one experience; you could site it like this:

    Smith, J.B. "Title." Poster presented as part
    of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, San Francisco, Calif., 23-26 March 2002. Abstract published in Jones BD, ed. Current Abstracts. New York, NY: Springer; 2002:211-212.

    Sorry, that should read:

    Smith, J.B. "Title." Poster presented as part of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology Annual Meeting, San Francisco, Calif., 23-26 March 2002. Abstract published in Jones BD, ed. Current Abstracts. New York, NY: Springer; 2002:211-212.
