ACS Now Accepting 2017 Jacobson Promising Investigator Award Applications



The American College of Surgeons Surgical Research Committee is accepting applications until February 24 for the 2017 Joan L. and Julius H. Jacobson II Promising Investigator Award. This award recognizes outstanding surgeons engaged in research, advancing the art and science of surgery, and demonstrating early promise of significant contributions to the practice of surgery and the safety of surgical patients.

This award is intended for surgeons who are at the “tipping point” of their research careers with a track record indicative of early promise and potential. Well-established surgeon-scientists are ineligible for the award.
