The Deterling Award

The Deterling Award of the New England Society for Vascular Surgery was established to stimulate and encourage original investigation in vascular disease conducted by vascular fellows, surgical residents or medical students.

It is named in honor of Ralph A. Deterling, Jr., MD (1917-1992), the second president of the NESVS, who contributed much to the formation of this Society.  Dr. Deterling served as Professor of Surgery and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at Tufts University School of Medicine and Surgeon-in-Chief of the New England Medical Center.  This award was established in his name in recognition of the high regard his trainees, colleagues and members of the Society held for him. 

The Deterling Award is presented annually in recognition of an outstanding original paper presented by a fellow, resident or medical student at the Society’s annual meeting.  Work considered for the Deterling Award may be either in basic science or clinical research.  Recipients currently receive an award of $1000 and a certificate of recognition.
