THE ANNUAL Trainee Award is given to the dermatology resident, fellow, or student who was first author on the most meritorious original research article published in the Archives in a given year.
Letters of nomination for trainee first authors may be submitted throughout the year by senior authors, research preceptors, or training directors.
Formal announcement of the award is made at the Residents' Colloquium, held at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology.
To allow closer synchrony between the judging process and formal announcement, the annual time frame for consideration has been moved from December to October. Thus, the 1997 recipient will be chosen from among nominations corresponding to articles published in the Archives from January to October 1997. Thereafter, the annual awardee will be chosen from nominations corresponding to articles published from November of the previous year to October of the following year.
