Dr. Gordon Vawter

  In 1991, the Society’s Pathologist-in-Training award was named in memory of Gordon F. Vawter, a pathologist and mentor at Boston Children’s Hospital. The Vawter Award recognizes the best platform or poster presentation by a pathologist in training (resident, fellow, medical or dental student) at the spring and fall meetings of the Society. The trainee must be the first author and presenter of the abstract, and must request consideration in the competition by checking the appropriate box on the abstract submittal form. 

The winner will receive an illuminated certificate, $500 cash award, and recognition in the Society Newsletter.
