WAHO 2020 Outstanding Hematology/Oncology Fellow Recognition Competition


The Wisconsin Association of Hematology and Oncology (WAHO) is now accepting abstracts for its 2020 Outstanding Hematology/Oncology Fellow Recognition Competition. This competition presents Fellows with the unique opportunity to showcase their groundbreaking research on clinical and scientific topics to experts nationwide.

Abstract categories can be previously evaluated and may address the myriad of issues facing oncology. 

Suggested areas of focus include:

  • Clinical Trials/Interventions
  • Developmental Therapeutics
  • Hematology
  • Medical, Radiation, or Surgical Oncology
  • Neuro-Oncology
  • Palliative Care
  • Pediatric Oncology
  • Pilot Studies
  • Retrospective Chart Review
  • Survivorship

Submission Details:

  • Abstracts must not exceed 250 words, excluding spaces, authors, and institutions.
  • Titles should include significant words that reflect the content of the abstract but not refer to the results or conclusions.
  • Proprietary names must not be used alone in the title or body of the abstract. If necessary, you may include a proprietary name in parenthesis after the first mention of the generic name in the body of the abstract.
  • Abstracts will be judged solely on the data in the submitted abstract. Statements such as "further data will be available" are discouraged.
  • Abbreviations must be placed in parentheses immediately after the first mention of a term or phrase; the abbreviation can then be used throughout the abstract. Take particular care to identify complex chemotherapy regimens accurately.
  • Abstracts must be accompanied by contact information for the first author (presenter): biography/CV, disclosure(s), institution (affiliation), address, telephone and fax number, and email address. First authors will receive a confirmation email verifying the abstract has been received. First authors will receive all future correspondence from WAHO. Please verify that all co-authors are aware of the contents of the abstract and support its data. 

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the WAHO Recognition Review Committee. The committee will select up to 10 fellows’ best abstracts for recognition on the WAHO website. The first authors of the winning abstracts will be awarded up to $2,500 and will be invited to submit a virtual research poster. The author of the highest rated abstract will also be requested to provide a 2-3-minute recorded narrative to their poster.  

Abstracts must be submitted electronically via email as a WORD or PDF document. Each first author will receive an email verifying that WAHO has received the abstract. Please include the name and institution for each co-author associated with the abstract.

*This competition is exclusive to Fellows in Wisconsin.
