Clinical Cases in Metabolic Bone Disease Seminar Award
The Clinical Cases in Metabolic Bone Disease Seminar was established in 2018 to encourage clinical interest in metabolic bone research in junior clinicians. This seminar provides an opportunity for physician trainees to present their case and literature review to a national scientific audience. It is anticipated that each case will spark lively discussion regarding complex areas of metabolic bone disease, engaging both clinicians and scientists. The clinical cases session aims to foster interest in the bone field amongst advanced trainees and senior clinicians and hopes to engage them into the wider clinician-researcher network.
The applicant must:
- be a trainee enrolled in a basic or advanced training program under the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (or equivalent college, if not practicing in Australia / NZ).
- submit a case summary (500-1000 words) detailing an interesting case primarily related to bone metabolism, with relevant laboratory and medical imaging findings and a brief outline of the literature. Three to five take home messages (in dot points) should be provided at the end of the submission.
The highest ranked abstracts submitted will be selected for oral presentation. Presentations will be adjudicated by a judging panel and a winner selected, to be announced at the ANZBMS Conference Dinner.
The Winner will Receive
- free ANZBMS ECIC membership for one year
- an opportunity to publish their case report for free* in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (JBMR) Plus, the premier open access journal of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (publication fee of $2,500USD waivered).
*Subject to journal guidelines and peer review process.
Applications can be submitted through the ANZBMS website. The deadline for the 2021 Clinical Cases in Metabolic Bone Disease Seminar is to be determined.
