Early Career Investigator Symposium

The Early Career Investigator Symposium (formerly known as Young Investigator Symposium) is an event held every year as part of the MACAAPM Annual Meeting.

This symposium features short presentations by our students and trainees in the region. This is an excellent opportunity for them to present their work in front of a varied audience of experts to get feedback, ideas, and practice effective scientific communication. There is also a panel of judges that selects the top three presentations in the symposium to receive cash prizes.
