Marjorie Bowman and Robert Choplin Junior Investigator Award (Formerly known as New Investigator Research Award)
The Marjorie Bowman and Robert Choplin Junior Investigator Award is intended to acknowledge outstanding work of a new primary care investigator. The investigator’s achievements will be based upon his/her independent scholarship and entire body of work, rather than a single work.
Eligibility Criteria: Nominee must be a current NAPCRG member.
The nominee must be within five years of the start of his/her independent research career. The start of an independent research career may be defined by the following elements:
Five years since completion of terminal degree (e.g. MD, PhD, MSW)
Five years since first peer-reviewed publication
Five years since obvious career transition (i.e. clinical to academic shift, earned mid-career Master’s degree, etc.)
Other evidence of early research career status (i.e. please describe why the nominee qualifies as a new investigator, if not explicitly by one of the criteria above)
Completed submissions will be evaluated independently by at least three members of the Awards Sub-Committee. Submitted scores will be tallied and averaged to identify a recipient. The recipient of the Marjorie Bowman and Robert Choplin Junior Investigator Award will be recognized and receive a commemorative plaque at the Awards Breakfast during the Annual Meeting.
