Arrhythmia Update Plus 2019

February 6 to February 9, 2019

Residents’ Case Challenge

Invitation to submit your cases to the Eighth Annual Residents' Case Challenge at Arrhythmia Update+ 2019

Dear residents and fellows:

The Arrhythmia Update+ Planning Committee is pleased to invite all cardiology residents and subspecialty fellows to submit an interesting case for presentation as part of the 8th Annual Residents’ Case Challenge which will take place during the Arrhythmia Update+ conference in Whistler, British Columbia. Five to six finalists will be chosen to present their cases at the meeting. The Residents’ Case Challenge is co-chaired by Dr. Beth L. Abramson and Dr. Adrian Baranchuk.

Terms of reference:

  • Applicants are asked to submit their application as a two-page abstract (~500 words double-spaced) of their chosen case.
  • Submitted cases must first and foremost have educational value and can be on any topic in clinical cardiology. While rare diagnoses may be more exciting, the more common cases are often more applicable to practice and have more educational value.
  • Clearly identify your teaching points and take-away message(s). All final presentations will be required to have one or more “take-home points” relevant to a practicing cardiologist.
  • You may indicate that you plan on presenting some graphics but do not include the graphics with your submission.
  • Submissions must be sent to Maëlle Gallois at maelle@eocipharma.com

Important dates:

  • Deadline to submit: November 15th 2018, at 5:00 p.m. EST
  • Finalists will be notified by December 3rd, 2018
  • Finalists must be available to travel to Whistler, BC on Feb. 6th – 9th, 2019
  • Selected residents will be expected to submit their slides for review and suggestions for improvement (and online interaction with both co-chairs) by January 11, 2019.


  • Cases submitted will be reviewed, and the six residents whose cases are selected will be invited to attend the conference and present their cases live to all attendees, on the afternoon of Thursday, February 7th, during the two-hour Residents’ Case Challenge session.
  • The conference organizers are pleased to provide finalists a flight in economy to Whistler, bus transfer, and three (3) nights’ accommodation at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler.
  • In order to foster professional relationships among trainees and the attendees, the selected residents are expected to attend the entire meeting (including workshops) along with the welcome reception where they will meet Dr. Abramson and Dr. Baranchuk.
  • We recommend no more than 15 slides, including all graphics for a 15-minute presentation.
  • The author of the best presentation will be decided by the conference attendees and announced at the end of the session.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
