Medical Partnership Residents to Present Abstracts at Georgia ACP Conference

Fifteen members of the Augusta University / University of Georgia Medical Partnership Internal Medicine Residency Program, in partnership with St. Mary’s Healthcare System, have been selected to give abstract presentations at the Georgia Chapter of the American College of Physicians at the Georgia ACP conference on October 12-14 at Calloway Gardens.

The Georgia ACP takes submissions each year for abstracts. Any resident in a Georgia Internal Medicine program can submit an abstract in any of these three topics: clinical vignettes, research, and quality improvement.

All Medical Partnership residents selected for this honor completed abstracts for the clinical vignette subject. Clinical vignettes tell a patient’s story and illustrate a rare disease, important teaching point, and/or uncommon presentation of a disease.

Once the abstracts were submitted, submissions were blinded and distributed to judges. The ones with the highest scores were invited to give poster presentations at the October conference. The person with the highest score at each residency program was invited to do an oral presentation. Medical Partnership resident Rida Younus was selected for this outstanding honor.

The AU/ UGA Medical Partnership Internal Medicine Residency Program Director Dr. Achilia Morrow, said expressed her excitement for this group. “They exceeded my expectations, which were already high,” said Morrow. “I’m proud of our continued presence at this conference.”
