Hey guys,

I have a really interesting case report that I was hoping to submit to a meeting for a poster. I know most meetings don't really accept case reports as abstracts (was told even ARVO doesn't so much), but does anyone know any lower tiered meetings that might accept it?

I had an interesting case that was accepted for a poster at the last ARVO meeting in Seattle. You should consider it!

I've had case reports accepted by ARVO. You just have to write it a little differently.

ARVO takes good case reports (except glaucoma probably), but the better place to present such cases would be smaller subspecialty meetings that more likely have 'interesting cases' sessions. Higher yield in terms of meeting people in your field also.

Agree with this completely. These are great opportunities to network.

Also a relatively new meeting, not well known, but hosted by some big wigs Ike Ahmed, Wendy Lee oculoplastics at Bascom, Starr, Solomon etc. (i.e. serious opportunity for face time) MillennialEYE Live at the Fountain Blue in Miami -- http://www.millennialeyelive.com They also have a pretty slick abstract competition that could get you a free ride down there as either a medical student (yes I asked them about this bc a med student working with me wants to go), resident, or fellow.

Good luck!
