Submit Abstracts

Each year the Call for Abstracts highlights the Prehospital Care Research Forum at UCLA activities. Abstracts are received from EMS providers, clinicians, educators,  administrators, and students from all over the nation and abroad. A peer-review process determines which authors are invited to present their study at a national conference. Authors frame their studies in the literature, which provides dynamic, interesting and provocative presentations. Conference participants are immersed in a collegial environment where the demystification of research takes place and its application begins.

2024 Call for Abstracts: Education, Clinical & Systems abstracts due JUNE 30, 2024

The best clinical research for 2023 will receive:

  • $500 USD cash award
  • A travel grant of up to $2000 USD to present your research at an over-seas international conference
  • The two best TRAUMA ABSTRACTS will also be included in PCRF’s abstracts for the International Scientific Symposium at EMSWorld Expo
