- Eligibility: case reports, case series, audits, clinical studies, and basic science studies may all be submitted. All submitted abstracts must have the submitting intern as the first author and must have a minimum of one senior author (e.g. Supervising Consultant for a Case Report).
- Abstract Format: abstracts must be submitted as a single-page Word document (.doc) and where possible using Bookman Old Style (Size 10) Font. A maximum of 300 words is permitted. The word limit excludes the abstract title, authors, and institutions. Abstracts are text only and should not include graphics (e.g. figures & tables). The author list should be in the format of Surname, First Initial (omit titles), author reference in superscript i.e. Name1, Name2, and include affiliated hospital and intern network. Please ensure that “track changes” are removed prior to submission. Submitted abstracts not in this format may be excluded from consideration for selection at Intern Day.

- Abstract Presentation: All interns considered for oral and poster presentations at the RAMI Intern Study Day will be notified by email no later than Thursday 30th November 2023 at 5.00 PM (GMT).
- Abstract Publication: All submitted abstracts will be considered for publication in the RAMI Intern Study Day Proceedings as a supplement to the Irish Journal of Medical Science (IJMS). When submitting the abstract you must select the option “Yes” or “No” for publication in IJMS. Only abstracts not published elsewhere will be considered for publication in the IJMS.
- Duplicate submissions: You cannot submit the same abstract to more than one presentation format. The submission of duplicate abstracts will, unfortunately, lead to the immediate rejection of the abstract(s) involved.
