SMSNA encourages residents to submit abstracts. Resident abstracts are eligible for the Residents Arena on Saturday evening, which is a special session of the SMSNA meeting in which each selected resident will give a two-minute presentation to a panel of young clinician judges. Each invited participant will receive Saturday night hotel accommodations (stipend). One winner will be selected in each of the following categories: clinical, surgical, and research. Each winner will receive a $500 prize.
