Instruction Guide (PDF)

Note from AAMC GREAT Leadership: We understand the uncertainty surrounding the location for the conference. We're diligently finalizing the contract, and we'll confirm the location soon. In the meantime, we highly encourage you to submit your proposal by the deadline. If the confirmed location presents a travel obstacle, you can simply contact us at

The Group on Research, Education, and Training (GREAT) Program Committee invites proposals for concurrent sessions, poster presentations, and 5-minute talks at the 2024 AAMC Biomedical Research Training Conference Hosted by GREAT. The conference is tentatively scheduled for October 7-9, 2024. More information on dates and location will be shared soon.

Build your professional network and learn, reflect, and engage with colleagues, by presenting at this unique joint meeting among faculty and administrative leaders of biomedical PhD, MD-PhD, and postdoctoral programs. Your input will ensure the Planning Committee considers a broad and rich spectrum of topics and speakers that are relevant to either one or all three communities. Submit a proposal to share your strategies and solutions.

Submissions can either be designed to address issues and/or topics important to one or more of the three communities: Graduate Training, MD-PhD Training, and Postdoctoral Training Sections.

Important Information
  • Submitters are strongly encouraged to read the Instruction Guide before logging in to submit a proposal.
  • Please remember that the submission does not need to be finalized in one session. You can access your proposal at any time prior to the submission deadline: April 14, 2024. This will replace the previous deadline of March 31.
  • Only completed submissions will be reviewed (i.e., all fields in the online form must be completed).
  • Include as much detail as you are able so the Program Committee can accurately assess the proposal.
  • Your acceptance of an invitation to present an approved session proposal requires a commitment to attend the meeting and to help organize and/or present at the session. Note that session proposal submitters/speakers are responsible for their own costs associated with meeting registration and travel.
  • The Program Committee encourages all speakers and panelists to include examples, case studies, and potential solutions throughout your proposal (e.g., detailed description, learning objectives).
  • The Program Committee reserves the right to consolidate submissions and/or recommend any additional speakers or content related changes that will enhance the presentation’s relevance to the audience.
Submission decisions will be sent to the primary submitter in May 2024.
