Prichard Award

The 2017 John F. Prichard Graduate Research Competition was an outstanding success once again. Ten abstracts were submitted from the University of Colorado Denver, University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, and Joint Base San Antonio Lackland.

Ten Judges, one for each residency program as well as three clinical judges, participated in the scoring of the abstracts. Based on this review, three abstracts were selected for oral presentation in both the clinical and basic sciences categories. 

On January 27, 2017, ten judges heard oral presentations of the selected abstracts. The winner of the Clinical Sciences category was Dr. Blaine Calahan from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. The winner of the Basic Sciences category was Dr. Haroon Ashraf from the University of Colorado Denver. 

Congratulations to Dr. Calahan and Dr. Ashraf as well as to the other three presenters (one Finalist was unable to attend the competition).

The awards were presented on January 28th during the SWSP Business Meeting. Procter & Gamble was recognized for their support of the competition. The 2017 competition was outstanding in both basic and clinical science categories; the written abstracts and oral presentations were outstanding, as well. Many thanks to the Judges for their time and willingness to participate in this year’s competition.

The purpose of the Prichard Award is to establish, maintain, and encourage participation in scientific presentations to fulfill the mission and goals of the Society and honor the memory of Dr. John F. Prichard. Interested in participating, learn more about the guidelines for participation.
