The F. Stephen Vogel Award was established by contributions to a fund created by his family?and friends. It is to be awarded in recognition of an outstanding paper by a resident or fellow published in one of the Academy journals, Modern Pathology or Laboratory Investigation, during the preceding calendar year. Thus, the 2015 award will be based on papers published during the calendar year 2014. The awardee must: (1) be a member, in good standing, of the USCAP for at least one year prior to receiving the award; (2) possess an MD, or international equivalent, degree; and (3) be a Pathologist-in-Training (resident or fellow) in a program accredited for residency training at the time the scientific investigation on which the article is based was initiated and substantially completed. Applicants should be the first author or submit documentation of a significant contribution to the paper. On papers with multiple authors, only one author is eligible, and only one paper per author may be submitted. The prize will consist of a check for $1,000 and a certificate. Applicants should complete the application form available on the USCAP website at www.uscap.org and electronically submit the form along with a reprint (or preprint) of their manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This award will be presented at the Business Meeting on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 during the USCAP Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. Funds for travel are not included and the awardee does not have to be present at the meeting.
