The purpose of the award is to introduce interested medical students to the greater interventional radiology community at the SIR Annual Scientific Meeting. The intent is to recognize the student author of an accepted abstract that best honors the spirit of inventiveness and scientific purity. Medical students at an accredited medical school who have demonstrated an interest in interventional radiology as a career and have participated in an original research project may apply.
The Annual Meeting Research Award Committee selects up to six recipients of this award each year.
1. Primary author must be a medical student at an accredited medical school and must present the abstract as an oral presentation at the SIR Annual Scientific Meeting.
2. Candidate does not need to be the principal investigator of the research project, but must have had a meaningful role in the research.
