STOWELL-ORBISON AWARDS: The Stowell-Orbison Awards are for trainees who are currently residents, fellows, or Ph.D.
candidates in Pathology. The USCAP offers up to four awards of $500 each to pathologists-intraining
who present the best papers through the medium of a poster presentation. In addition
to these cash awards, a limited number of Certificates of Merit may also be presented. Posters for
this competition will be judged by a panel of members of the USCAP Education Committee.
SURGICAL and AUTOPSY PATHOLOGY AWARDS: The Association of Directors of Anatomic and Surgical Pathology and the United States and
Canadian Academy of Pathology co-sponsor two additional awards of $500 each to a pathologistin-
training for the best posters on a morphology-based surgical pathology study and on autopsy
material, respectively, presented as part of the Stowell-Orbison Competition. Applicants may win
either of these awards alone, or they may win it in addition to a Stowell-Orbison Award. Posters
for this competition will be judged by a panel of members of the ADASP.
Papers accepted for both of these competitions will be presented as posters on Monday morning
of the USCAP Annual Meeting. The names of the winners will be posted at the Registration
Desk by noon on Tuesday and the Awards presentation will be at the Business Meeting on
Tuesday afternoon. Only one paper per person is eligible for this competition. In order to qualify,
the potential awardee must have had a major role in the development of the studies leading to the
proffered abstract and must be listed as the first author of the paper. The abstract must not have
been presented at another meeting nor previously published.
An application form for these awards is available through the Electronic Abstract Submission
Program. In order to be entered in the competition for these awards you must complete the
online form and have your “in training” status verified online by the Department Chairman or
Program Director. No abstract can be entered in the competition unless this online form has been
completed prior to submission.
Abstracts submitted for this competition, but not selected, are automatically considered for
acceptance as a “regular” abstract presentation.
