Physician in Training Awards

Four $1,000 prizes for excellence in medical writing are given at our annual
meetings. These prizes are given to fellows, residents, or medical students
who give the four better papers on the program. The recipient must be the first
author on the paper and the investigation and manuscript completion must occur
at a medical facility within the MAOA 20-state area. Papers are rated on content,
timeliness, the hypothesis, material and methods, and results.  

The Program Committee selects these award recipients. The top two award winners
will have an opportunity to present their papers at the next AAOS Annual Meeting.
