Podium Presentation Requirements

Paper presentations are limited to 6 minutes and will be timed.  Please go online and click the disclosure link on the MOA homepage at www.mdortho.org or go to www.aaos.org to complete the Mandatory Financial Disclosure Form, if you have not already completed one in the last year.   All co-authors must complete a Financial Disclosure Form in order for you to present at the meeting. It is your responsibility to have your co-authors go online to complete the form.  Disclosure information must be updated yearly.   This paperwork needs to be completed, and returned along with your Annual Meeting registration form on or before January 16, 2019.  Your presentation will be removed from the program if all of your co-authors do not complete the Disclosure Form by February 5th. 

The Financial Disclosure and FDA Forms attached to your acceptance letter are not optional. The ACCME requires the Mandatory Financial Disclosure Form be completed by all authors and coauthors and returned to our office in order for you to speak at the meeting. In addition, they require that the 1st or 2nd slide of your presentation include your disclosure statement.  This slide should outline the disclosure information included on the disclosure form. 

Refer to the Guidelines for Podium Presentation and Audiovisual Download Instructions for additional presentation information, both on the MOA website.  Complete meeting information along with a list of E-Poster presentations and the Tentative Scientific Program are all available on the MOA website. 

The 2019 Annual Meeting of MOA will be held February 9th at Loews Annapolis Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland.  All the meeting information including social, hotel and registration are available on the MOA Website.
