Junior Physician-Investigator Awards
Deadline: January 30, 2014
These awards were created to honor young investigators whose research projects complement an overall program of research, teaching and clinical medicine. To be considered, a candidate must be a physician who has held a full-time medical school faculty appointment for five years or less. Candidates must have submitted an abstract for the 2014 AFMR Regional Meetings. Presenters at the Western Regional Meeting in Carmel, the Southern Regional Meeting in New Orleans, the Combined Midwestern Meeting in Chicago and the Eastern Regional Meeting in Washington, DC who meet the requisite criteria are eligible and will be judged on both the quality of the abstract submitted and their career accomplishments. Award winners will be required to present their work in person via poster at the 2014 AFMR Eastern Regional Annual Meeting in Washington, DC and attend the AFMR Annual Henry Christian and Awards Dinner on Tuesday evening, April 8, 2014. Applicants must submit a letter of support from their mentor, division chief, or department chair along with the attached application. A certificate and $2,500 will be presented to two winners in 2014.
To qualify for Henry Christian and Junior Physician Investigator Awards, applicants must be AFMR members in good standing. If you are not currently an AFMR member, you must submit a membership application along with the award application. A membership application can be completed online at the AFMR website, www.afmr.org.
