RCOG World Congress 2019 Abstract Reviewer

We are seeking reviewers to assist us with the abstract review process for the RCOG World Congress 2019, taking place at ExCel, London on 17 to 19 June.

With the call for abstracts now distributed, we are in the process of inviting reviewers for the abstract grading process which will take place in February 2019. The closing date for abstract submission is 21 January 2019 with confirmation of abstract acceptance set for March 2019.

We welcome applications from anyone with MRCOG or equivalent and experience of presenting a regional conference or above, particularly those with special interest in the categories available for submission for instance sub-specialty trainees.

What is required of you?

Abstract reviewers need to be available to judge abstracts between 4 and 18 February 2019. We will require grading to be completed by midnight on Monday 18 February 2019.

We hope to build a pool of reviewers sufficient in number to ensure that, wherever possible, the approx. number of abstracts to be reviewed will be 100 (minimum 50) per reviewer. We will aim for each abstract to be reviewed a minimum of twice, ideally 3 times.

The allocation of abstracts will be based on the areas of interest which you specify when you register with the online reviewing site.
