Drs. Bradley, Kuy, Ridolfi, and Whitehouse Receive MCWAH 2010 Research Awards
Attached is a list of the $500, 2010 Research Award winners (attachment). They are listed alphabetically according to the programs. They were nominated by their respective program directors and selected by MCWAH’s Research Committee comprising of Drs. David Brousseau, Mary Dahmer, David Gutterman, Kathleen Quinn-Leering, Michael Widlansky and me.
The purpose of the award is to recognize the housestaff employed by MCWAH for excellence in research. This should stimulate more housestaff participation in research and meeting the research benchmark for GME (at least 50% of MCWAH housestaff will participate in, present and publish their research).
The Pediatric fellows are employed by MCW as instructors and were considered ineligible for the MCWAH research award.
In 2009, the Medical Society of Milwaukee County gave a $5,000 grant to MCWAH for 10 $500 research awards. In 2009-10 academic year, the MCWAH Board allocated $10,000 for 20 research awards. The MCWAH Board has again allocated $10,000 for 20 awards in the academic year 2010-11.
