Presenter Resources

Oral Presentation Guidelines

You will be asked to submit your presentation prior to the conference so registrants may benefit from having handouts during the conference.  These presentations will be pre-loaded into the presentation computer onsite.  Please bring a back-up copy of your presentation.
If you do not submit your presentation or have made changes and would like to update the file, bring your PowerPoint presentation to the Registration Desk the day prior to your session and AT LEAST 2 HOURS prior to the start of your session.  Again, please bring a back-up copy of your presentation to your session room.

  • Include your conflict of interest disclosure on your opening slide. If you have nothing to disclose, include the following sentence:
    I, or an immediate family member, including spouse or partner, have no financial relationship(s) relevant to the content of this CME activity. For more information see the Faculty Disclosure Statement
  • Use several bullet points that target the topic on each slide - no more than seven bullets per slide
  • Use large, easy-to-read fonts, such as Arial
  • Keep the text simple and concise.
  • Mix text with simple graphics and figures for greater interest.
  • Orient all type horizontally, even on graphs and diagrams
  • Consider colorblindness and clarity when choosing accent colors and backgrounds

Poster Presentation Guidelines

Please keep in mind that the purpose of presenting a poster is to outline your work for discussion.  Therefore, poster presenters are required to attend their poster and be available for questions during their assigned poster session.  Please prepare your poster to communicate the main points of your work to stimulate discussion with your viewers.

  • The display area is 8 feet wide by 4 feet high.  Each poster board will be marked with an abstract number.  Please mount your poster on the poster board labeled with your assigned abstract number. 
  • Include your conflict of interest disclosure on your poster. If you have nothing to disclose, include the following sentence:
    I, or an immediate family member, including spouse or partner, have no financial relationship(s) relevant to the content of this CME activity. For more information see the Faculty Disclosure Statement
  • Push pins will be provided to mount your poster to the poster board!
  • Poster presentations should be simple and to the point.  Use a minimum amount of clear text.  Avoid jargon.
  • Make sure the poster is easy to read.  Use large, BOLD fonts. 
  • Include section headings to direct the reader’s attention.
  • Catch your reader’s attention with accent colors for contrast and to highlight main points.
  • Use borders or white space to separate sections and increase legibility.
  • Use simple figures (graphs, charts, illustrations and photographs) to illustrate your point.  Make sure to include captions!
  • Summarize your results/findings with bullet points.
  • Consider providing handouts during your poster session.
