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 2019 award will be based on papers published during the calendar year 2018.
The awardee must:
(1) be a USCAP member, in good standing, at least one year prior to receiving the award;
(2) possess an M.D., or international equivalent, degree; and
(3) be a pathologist-in-training (resident or fellow) in a program accredited for 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 online and electronically submit the form along with a PDF reprint (or preprint) of their manuscript and a PDF of the signed VERIFICATION OF ELIGIBILITY FORM, available HERE. The Vogel Award Committee will select the awardee.
This award will be presented on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 during the USCAP Annual Meeting in National Harbor, Maryland. Funds for travel are not included and the awardee does not have to be present at the meeting.
