Research Fellowship Abstracts

Any current Orthopaedic Residents and Fellows are invited to submit clinical and research based abstracts

for poster presentation at the 2022 ASAP Meeting.



ASAP Resident and Fellow Research Fellowship Abstract Submission Guidelines


Resident and fellow participation in ASAP (Advanced Shoulder Arthroplasty) is critical to the long-term success of advancing the goals of the ASAP meeting.  To further our mission, ASAP is sponsoring a research fellowship competition for the 2022 ASAP meeting.  All current orthopaedic residents and fellows are eligible for submission.  Only one submission will be allowed per resident or fellow as the lead author and only the lead author will be eligible for the fellowship.  The topic of the research should be primary or revision anatomic or reverse total shoulder arthroplasty. Both clinical and basic science abstracts will be considered.

Six abstracts will be selected to be presented as posters during the meeting.  The top three of the six abstracts will be awarded a research fellowship to the meeting that will cover all meeting registration costs as well as lodging costs (standard room). The six chosen abstracts will be recognized during the meeting and will be displayed as a poster in the conference lobby area. It is expected that the lead authors from the selected six abstracts will be present at the meeting.
