Academic compendium competition 2016

Overview & description

This year marks our 51st Annual Academic Competition. This contest is a scholarly competition designed primarily to encourage and stimulate the writing of professional papers and the presentation of professional posters. An added purpose is to promote the awareness of the role of the Health Sciences Library in support of patient care, continuing professional development and research.

The contest is open to residents, fellows, nurses, post-doctorial trainees and allied health professionals in student programs, and affiliated students of the clinical campuses of Northwell Health. Doctoral students at the Feinstein Institute’s Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine and the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell are eligible for the Basic Science or Clinical Science Research categories.

The subject of the paper or poster is at the discretion of the author, but should be based on activities at Northwell Health or the Zucker School of Medicine. The form of presentation should be similar to that of articles in professional journals or posters exhibited at National Meetings. Although a contestant may confer with senior staff during the preparation of the paper or poster, the entry presented must be written by the contestant as the first author.

Abstracts submitted for papers or posters are reviewed by at least three judges who are instructed to use a uniform system of grading. The papers and posters are judged according to excellence of the introduction, methods (or description for case reports), results, and conclusion. Authors of paper abstracts that are selected in the first round of judging are asked to prepare full length papers. These papers are then submitted to a second round of judging. First and Second place papers are selected in each category. Authors of poster abstracts that are selected in the first round of judging are asked to submit full poster exhibits to be shown to the public at the Academic Competition. A panel of judges will review each of these posters and a first and second place will be awarded in each of the categories.

Since we value each contribution, every paper and poster receives meticulous attention and review. In order to provide equal competition, the categories chosen reflect the types of submissions and the academic achievement of the contestants. These categories are divided into basic science research, case reports, clinical science research, education outcomes research, and literature reviews. Nursing, Allied Health, and Zucker School of Medicine students each have a separate category under Poster and Paper Presentations.

The Annual Academic Competition Committee extends their appreciation to all the participants for their effort, work and writings.

Eligibility & submission instructions

Eligibility

The competition is open to residents, fellows, nurses, post-doctorial trainees and allied health professionals in student programs, and affiliated students of the clinical campuses of Northwell Health. Doctoral students at the Feinstein Institute’s Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine and the Zucker School of Medicine are eligible for the Basic Science or Clinical Science Research categories. Submissions must be based on activities at Northwell Health or the Zucker School of Medicine. Abstracts will be grouped and judged based on classifications defined below. Papers may be submitted for publication or “In Press” but not already published by date of abstract submission. Posters may have been presented at a professional meeting during the 2014-2015 academic year. The first author of each abstract must be a member of one of the categories of eligible participants.

Initial submissions

All initial submissions must be submitted on the official Competition Abstract Form (located on the Northwell Health intranet under the Education & Research tab, Office of Academic Affairs section). Authors must indicate whether they are entering the abstract for the poster or the paper competition. Participants are limited to submitting either two papers, two posters or a poster and a paper. Finalists for posters and papers will be notified via email during the third week of March. The deadline for the submission of full papers will be April 18th. Posters are due on June 1st – the Northwell Health Academic Day. All poster first authors must be in attendance that day to present their posters to the judges.

Abstracts

It is required that those who are eligible to submit an abstract select a faculty mentor who is knowledgeable of the content of the abstract to act as a collaborator for their proposal. Participants will need to affirm their mentor has reviewed their abstract prior to submitting it electronically. All abstracts must include the abstract title, be no more than 350 words utilizing Times New Roman 12 or Calibri size 11 font, single spaced and contain the required information described on the next page. Abstracts should not include author(s) names, figures, tables or references. Abstracts for studies in progress without final results and conclusions will be accepted as long as there is some preliminary information included in order to judge the abstract.  The abstract should indicate anticipated results from data collected, i.e. what you hope to report as outcomes from data collected. It is expected that results and conclusions will be included in the Full Paper or Poster on due dates noted above, if chosen. The individual submitting the abstract must be the eligible first author. The subject is at the discretion of the author, but should be based on work or educational experience connected with the clinical campuses.

Dr. Seymour Cohen memorial lecture

Dr. Samuel Cohen was Vice President for Education and Research at Long Island Jewish Medical Center from 1981 until his retirement in January 2000. During his more than 18 years as Vice President of Education and Research at LIJ, he was an effective leader especially in the area of medical education. In the fall of 2006 we lost Dr. Cohen and in June 2007 the Northwell Health introduced a memorial lecture as a living tribute to Dr. Cohen’s many contributions to education and research with the presentation of the Dr. Cohen Memorial Lecture.

Dr. Cohen was actively involved in the negotiations that led to the Medical Center’s affiliation with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine where he became an assistant dean. During his tenure, the medical center’s graduate medical education program grew and the accredited programs were recognized for their high quality. Many of the independent programs successfully sought formal recognition and eventually received accreditation from national bodies including the ACGME, CODME and AOA. 

Dr. Cohen was also instrumental in growing and strengthening the Medical Center’s Continuing Medical Education activity. Under his leadership the Medical Center received and maintained ACCME accreditation for its many CME programs. The Medical Center sponsored many highly successful local, national and international programs attracting noted experts in medicine to participate as guest lecturers.

The Medical Center’s research programs also grew and flourished under Dr. Cohen’s leadership attracting many young and promising researchers who have gone on to become recognized leaders in their fields.
