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 2018. You must also indicate your interest in applying for this award during the regular abstract submission period (October 7-December 2, 2016).  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.
