Educational Objectives

Objectives should include a verb that is chosen to describe something a physician will do in practice (and not what the teacher will teach). For example, do not use verbs such as "discuss" or "describe, learn or understand." Use words such as "apply, develop a strategy to..., etc." Ensure that the objective clearly states a standard against which one can judge the success in achieving the objective. You must provide objectives for each talk.

Final Presentation
IMPORTANT: As you are preparing your final presentation(s), in accordance with accreditation requirements, be sure to include a slide stating your financial disclosures, placed just after the title slide.

If you are using Microsoft Power Point and your presentation has NO integrated video, please submit a copy of your final presentation(s) ahead of the meeting. Allowing the AV technician to have the presentations pre-loaded on our laptop ensures fewer delays and the meeting running on time.

It is highly encouraged that you supplement your presentation slides with supporting documents, articles, research results, etc. Learners value and have come to expect at least a version of the speaker's presentation be made available to them, if not during the meeting, shortly after. In lieu of printed materials, handouts, in PDF format, will be uploaded to the meeting web app. The PDFs will be accessible only to attendees via user login/password.

Select one option below:
USE MY PRESENTATION: The GSDDS may PDF my final presentation to use as my handout. I WILL SEND A SEPARATE HANDOUT: I will email handout material at least 2 weeks prior to the activity to to maryann@theassociationcompany.com. NO HANDOUT: I do not authorize the use of my final presentation as handout material, nor will I provide supplemental handout material.
