American Physician Scientists Association

2nd Annual Meeting

Chicago, IL (April 28-30, 2006)

Meeting Information will be updated as it becomes available. Posted information are tentative and subject to change as the program is being developed.

APSA will hold its 2nd Annual meeting in Chicago, IL on April 28-30, 2006 furthering its relationship with the American Society for Clinical Investigation, Central Society for Clinical Research, and the American Federation for Medical Research.  This meeting is being held in conjunction with the ASCI / AAP Joint Meeting.  Attendees will have the opportunity to present their scientific research at the ASCI Poster Session.  APSA views the ASCI meeting to be an integral part of attending the APSA meeting as it equally values the interactions between budding physician-scientists and current leading physician-scientists.

Each event will be labeled with its sponsoring organization.  Please note that at this meeting, the APSA portion of the meeting will tentatively be held with the ASCI at the Fairmont Hotel and will most likely spread its schedule over the entirety of the three days.  The Fairmont Hotel is located in downtown Chicago on the northern edge across from the Millennium Park.
