Gilbert Troup ASA Prize
Description: The Gilbert Troup ASA Prize commemorates the contribution to Australian anaesthesia by Dr Gilbert Troup of Perth, Western Australia. Applicants should submit an abstract via the online submission process for papers to the annual NSC once the ‘Call for Papers’ is issued. This submission page is found by following the ‘Application’ link for the Award on the NSC website. All papers submitted are reviewed by the committee as to their eligibility and suitability prior to acceptance. Those accepted for presentation at the NSC will deliver a ten-minute oral presentation illustrated by AV support discussing the aims, methods and results of their research. This will be followed by a five-minute question period. Those papers not accepted may be offered a poster format—either in a Smiths Medical/ASA Best Poster Prize session or as a static poster display.
Eligibility: Application is open to ASA members only. Applications must be based on original research, (the majority of which has been performed in Australia). The principal content of the paper must not have previously been presented at a national meeting in Australia. The presenter must be one of the authors of the paper. Once a paper has been accepted for inclusion in the Gilbert Troup ASA Prize session, it will no longer be eligible for other NSC-judged awards.
Award: The prize includes a medal, known as the Gilbert Troup Medal, and $7500.
The award will be presented during the NSC, usually prior to the ASA’s Annual General Meeting.
Please refer to the ASA Bylaws (which can be found on the ASA website) for more detailed information regarding this award.
