SSCI Awards

To be eligible for the SAFMR/SSCI awards, you or your mentor (in the case of students and trainees) must be a member in good standing of AFMR or SSCI. You may choose to become a member at the time of the award. In this case, your membership fee will be deducted from the award amount.


SSCI Young Investigator Awards

The SSCI Young Investigator Awards are offered to recognize and encourage excellence in investigation by physicians and medical students during research training. Three awards are given ($1,000, $750, and $600).

Eligibility: combined MD/PhD students, interns, residents, and post-doctoral physicians who are in research training or were in research training as of June 2021 are eligible. Postdoctoral research training may be considered to extend for a period of up to three years and time spent in strictly clinical fellowships need not count against this. The applicant must be the first author of the abstract submitted in competition for the award and plan to present the paper during the scientific sessions of the Southern Regional Meetings. Please note that it is not necessary for the senior author to be a member of SSCI. Applicants for this award are encouraged to apply for the appropriate SAFMR/SSCI Award as well.

For consideration of this award, the abstract has to suggest:

  1. investigator-initiated;
  2. hypothesis-driven basic, clinical or behavioral research;
  3. conducted in a mode of discovery;
  4. whose study design, findings and conclusions satisfied the proposed hypothesis; and
  5. findings have or will have the potential to advance the practice of medicine.

Nomination letters from the senior investigator, mentor, the division director or department chairman are required and should include a statement of the candidate's role in the study. The letters should be received no later than October 8, 2021 and uploaded via the ScholarOne website upon submission of your abstract. Abstract will not be considered for award without the letters of support.
