Application Deadline: Annually on VAM Abstract Submission Deadline
The Resident Research Prize is intended to motivate physicians, early in their training, to pursue their interest in research, and offer the opportunity to present their research at the Vascular Annual Meeting®. The Research and Education Committee selects one recipient for the Resident Research Prize each year.
The Resident Research Prize consists of a US$5,000 award and a one-year complimentary subscription to the Journal of Vascular Surgery®. The prize-winning work is presented at the Vascular Annual Meeting® and is considered for publication in the Journal of Vascular Surgery. Decisions regarding the Resident Research Prize are mailed to the recipient by the end of March.
Eligibility for Selection
- The resident must be enrolled in a training program in the United States or Canada where the research is taking place
- A member of the Society for Vascular Surgery® (SVS), must be a senior collaborator, and assume responsibility for the research
- The research must be original and experimental, with an expectation that the majority of the laboratory research will have been performed by the resident
- The research must not have been previously presented, published, or submitted for publication
An abstract and a complete manuscript must be submitted electronically via the Vascular Annual Meeting® submission website. The manuscript submission must comply with the Instructions for Authors for the Journal of Vascular Surgery.
In addition, a letter from the SVS sponsoring member must be submitted to the Research and Education Committee via firstname.lastname@example.org. This letter should describe the SVS sponsoring member's role in the project and the resident's status in the training program where the research is taking place.
Residents are encouraged to consider submission of these abstracts for presentation at the Vascular Research Initiatives Conference.
