This award is presented at the annual scientific meeting of APEG to the best scientific presentation by an APEG member who is within 5 years (or equivalent full time*) of completing their specialist qualifications (eg: FRACP, PhD, MD etc) and is an emerging researcher. APEG members with established research track records as evidenced by publications and/or success in research grant funding would not normally be considered appropriate candidates for this award.
The award is made on the advice of a committee, which consists of at least 3 people appointed by APEG Council. Candidates are assessed according to their project’s scientific merit and originality, the clarity of their presentation and their response to questions from the audience.
* justification of the equivalent full time period may be requested
