What is the Annual Symposium?
The annual symposium is a five-day meeting featuring advanced programming presented by leading professionals in the voice care field. Papers, Posters, Workshops and Panels are presented to educate the scientific and artistic communities about advances being made in voice science, care and training. Voice professionals, including surgeons, scientists, speech-language pathologists, voice teachers, performing artists and students from all over the world come to gather the most up-to-date research findings, therapeutic techniques, and improved surgical methods in the field of voice medicine. They network with colleagues, see product demonstrations, learn cutting-edge techniques and earn continuing education credits.
It is a CME and CEU -accredited Voice Symposium from May 30 through June 3, 2018.
The program is designed to foster future researchers and teachers. As part of the symposium, we give young researchers an opportunity to talk with and learn from senior scientists by first presenting their research as posters and, as they progress, as oral presentations. We offer research awards including Van Lawrence Fellowship, Sataloff Young Investigator Award, Hamdan International Presenters Award, Best Student Presentation, Gisele Oliveira Award, Poster Awards, and Best Paper Awards.
During the symposium, the New Investigators Research Forum gives two young researchers the opportunity to present their research-in-progress to the world’s most respected scientists in the field for feedback.
More than 400 voice care professionals attend, including a strong faculty attendance from hospitals and universities world-wide. Papers presented at this Symposium educate the public and the scientific community on the latest advances in voice science and care.
