The BOA Abstract submission for Congress 2022 is Now Closed!

Every year, as part of the BOA Annual Congress, healthcare professionals from across the UK and overseas submit abstracts on orthopaedic topics to be judged by experts in the field, with the hope of being able to present their work at Congress. Please see below for more information on the process, as well as the categories available for this year.

The Review Process

The review of abstracts will take place in May. Each abstract will be reviewed by a minimum of three medical professionals who are experts on the specific topic that corresponds to the content of the abstract. Once all abstracts are reviewed and scored, the highest ranking abstracts are selected to be included in the Congress programme in free paper sessions. Abstracts selected will either be presented as a podium or poster presentation during Congress 2022 in Birmingham.

Any abstracts submitted that have been published previously may not be selected.
