Award Details

Oral and Quick Shot presentations by a breast fellow will be considered for the following:

  • The George Peters Award for the best abstract presented by a breast fellow. (Fellows eligible for this award are required to submit a manuscript to Annals of Surgical Oncology by April 22, 2019.) This award was established by the Society to honor Dr. George N. Peters, who was instrumental in bringing together the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, The American Society of Breast Surgeons, the American Society of Breast Disease, and the Society of Surgical Oncology to develop educational objectives for breast fellowships. The educational objectives were first used to award Komen Interdisciplinary Breast Fellowships. Subsequently the curriculum was used for the breast fellowship credentialing process that has led to the development of a nationwide matching program for breast fellowships. The winner of the George Peters Award receives $1000* and a plaque.

Oral and Quick Shot presentations by a fellow, resident, or medical trainee will be considered for the following:

  • The Outstanding Scientific Presentation Award for the best paper presented by a medical student, resident, or fellow. (Medical students, residents, or fellows eligible for this award are required to submit a manuscript to Annals of Surgical Oncology by April 22, 2019.) The winner of the Outstanding Scientific Presentation Award receives $500* and a plaque.

All Oral presentations will be considered for the following:

  • The Scientific Impact Award for the best paper as voted on by the audience. The winner of the Scientific Impact Award receives a plaque.

*A prize of $1,000 will be granted to the winner of the George Peters Award and $500 to the winner of the Outstanding Scientific Presentation Award—both of which are supported by The American Society of Breast Surgeons Foundation.
