Resident Achievement Award
Resident Achievement Awards are presented annually to up to five outstanding resident members in recognition of their clinical ability, patient/resident manner, resident/staff relationships, and resident/community involvement. These awards may be presented to residents in the general, general vascular, neurological, orthopedic, plastic and reconstructive, cardiothoracic and vascular, and urological surgical specialties. Through a generous grant from the ACOS Trust Fund, award recipients will be presented with a plaque and a cash award of $2,000.
The Resident Achievement Award Application form must be completed and then printed to obtain formal signatures from both the applicant and the program director. Nominee's curriculum vitae must accompany application, but may not be substituted for the application itself. Applicants may only apply for the award during their final year of residency training and/or during other subsequent fellowship training. Residents must be ACOS members, be nominated by their program director and submit their application to the ACOS no later than June 1.
