Distinguished Trainee Research Awards

Purpose: The Distinguished Trainee Research Awards are intended to promote and acknowledge outstanding completed primary care research conducted by trainees. 

Eligibility Criteria: Undergraduate students, medical students, graduate students, residents, and fellows submitting an abstract as the primary (first) author are eligible to receive a trainee award. Only abstracts submitted as completed research projects will be considered for a trainee award.

Evaluation Process: All trainee abstracts submitted as completed research projects during the spring and summer submission period will be evaluated through NAPCRG’s established peer-review process.  The top six scoring abstracts will be considered for a trainee award.  

The Awards Committee Chair will contact each trainee, via electronic mail, to inform him/her that his/her work is being considered for a Trainee Award.  The trainee will be required to confirm that the submitted abstract represents his/her work.

Selected trainees will be invited to present their work at a special Trainee Designated Oral Presentation session to be held on Sunday, November 13, 2016.  Each trainee will have 10 minutes to present and 5 minutes to respond to questions.  Members of the Awards Committee will evaluate presentations to collectively identify award recipients.  

Awards will be given to recognize the top 3 research projects by trainees. The Dr. Barbara Starfield Award will be awarded for the best completed research project by a trainee.  All Distinguished Trainee Award winners will be recognized at the Awards Breakfast during the Annual Meeting.
