Physicians and Medical Students will have the opportunity to share their thoughts, projects, and ideas that support physician well-being at the Annual Joy of Medicine Summit. Find out how to submit a presentation below.
Lightning Grand Rounds
A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes, given at a conference by a multitude of speakers. The goal of lightning talks is to articulate a topic in a quick, insightful, and clear manner. These concise and efficient talks are intended to grab the attention of the audience, convey key information, and allow for several presenters to share their ideas in a brief period of time. Presentations may be in a narrative format as well.
