ACCME / cme note:

  • It is important that content be "generic" rather than "brand name" in nature, and an effort should be made to include other technologies and competing products in the discussions (e.g. IPL, RF, etc.).
  • During the Q&A session, presenters can answer specific device questions, but the actual presentations must be generic in nature.

oral presentation mentorship

If you would like a presentation mentor to help review grammar or provide coaching tips for oral presentation, please send a copy of your PowerPoint presentation with your request. We will pair you with an ASLMS mentor. Contact with your request.


  • A disclosure slide listing any and all financial relationships with ACCME defined commercial interests acquired within the past 12 months will be automatically added to the presentation once uploaded.
  • Appearance of COI (i.e. bias or content directly pertinent to disclosures) is not permitted.
  • Advertising, trade names, corporate logos or product-group messages are NOT allowed.
  • Videos are not recommended due to time limits.
  • Internet-based, embedded content will not be supported.
  • Keep the PowerPoint within 5-10 slides for an even paced and easy-to-follow presentation.
  • Time guidelines will be strictly enforced out of fairness. Most abstracts must be presented within 4 - 6 minutes. Allotted time will be determined by the Section Chair.
  • The Section Chairs will provide separate time for Q&A.
