Professional Society Annual Meeting Dates

research day for professional society annual meeting datesAnnual Meetings of medical professional societies, (e.g., the Society of General Internal Medicine, American College of Surgeons) provide excellent venues to showcase faculty scholarship through oral presentations, workshops, and posters. The meetings also offer an opportunity for faculty to engage with colleagues nationally or regionally, develop professional networks, and obtain leadership roles in one’s discipline.

The Office of Faculty Affairs has compiled this list of specialty-specific annual meeting time frames and submission deadlines (where available). Societies are listed in alphabetical order within specialty.

Please email Dr. Tara Catanzano, Associate Director of Academic Career Development in the Office of Faculty Affairs, with questions or additions to the lists. Last updated January 8, 2020.
