The Guiberteau Award for Resident Excellence is made possible by a generous gift to the TRS Foundation from Milton J. Guiberteau, MD, FACR. Dr. Guiberteau, a past-President of both the TRS and the ACR, is known for his service and achievements in organized radiology and a lifetime of personal mentoring and teaching of radiology residents in Texas as well as nationally and internationally through his textbooks and writings in his subspecialty of nuclear medicine.
This cash award will be given annually at the TRS Annual Meeting, and fulfills the intent of Dr. Guiberteau’s gift to recognize outstanding resident contributions.
Graduating Residents (PGY5) will be eligible for the award, and the award will be given annually at the TRS Annual Meetings. The 2017 Guiberteau Award is titled the “Texas Resident Excellence Award”, and will be based on the qualities of Scholarship, Leadership, and Citizenship/Humanitarianism. Each radiology Program Director will nominate one candidate from their program that they feel best embodies all of these qualities. The online nomination form will be sent directly to all Texas radiology Program Directors. The nomination must include a letter of nomination from the Program Director, a personal statement from the resident, and the nominated resident’s CV. Please work with your nominated resident to complete the nomination form by the nomination due date.
A committee comprised of the non-academic members of the TRS Foundation Board of Directors will review the nominations, and choose three finalists. The finalists will be announced in January, 2017, and will be invited to participate in in-person interviews with the committee on prior to the TRS Annual Meeting. The three finalists, if from outside the local meeting area, will automatically be one of the funded residents allotted to that program. The winner will be announced during the TRS Awards Dinner on Friday of the meeting. The three finalists must be in attendance at the dinner. Each finalist will be provided with three tickets to the Awards Banquet.
The winner of the Guiberteau Award will receive a cash prize and commemorative gift. The amount of the cash prize is $5,000 for the first place winner and $1,000 each for two runner-ups. There are no requirements as to how the cash prize can be spent. The winning resident’s program will also receive a plaque.
