TSS also provides the opportunity for double exposure as trainees may present their abstracts at TSS and during the FOCIS Annual Meeting which begins the same day. Trainees will have direct interaction with their counterparts from across the country and the globe as well as with FCE Directors who are leaders in their field. FCE Directors will be present throughout TSS to provide mentoring and feedback on oral presentations and posters.
