Fellow with the Highest Scoring Abstract

Submission Open: October 10, 2018

This award recognizes the fellow-in-training with the highest scoring abstract in all sub-categories, excluding the Allied Professional subcategory.


To be considered for this award, you must be a fellow currently in a training program or no more than one year out of fellowship training as of May 2019. You must also indicate your interest in applying for this award during the regular abstract submission period (October 10 - December 7, 2018). In late January, after abstracts have gone through the peer-review process, the submitting authors of the top five highest scoring abstracts will be sent an award application to complete, as along with an eligibility form to be signed by their training directors. Once the awards review process has been completed and all authors have been notified in February of the status of their abstracts, the winner of the award will be announced.

Frequency: One award; given annually


This award includes complimentary registration to the current year’s Scientific Sessions, a plaque, and $1,500 for the Presenting Author’s travel and housing expenses.
