The Thoracic Prize
The Thoracic Prize was instituted in 2006 by the Council of the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery. The Prize is awarded to a medical doctor in specialty training in thoracic or cardio-thoracic surgery. It is not limited to European citizens.
The amount awarded is €30,000 and should cover the costs of one year's stay at a major European department or any other European research facility. The activities during this year are left to the discretion of the prize-winner and the head of the department visited, but should primarily involve fields such as research training, research activities, advanced clinical education and/or departmental management.
The deadline for submission of applications is 15 April.
Applicants are requested to send in the following documents to the Secretary General at the EACTS Executive Secretariat address stated below:
The selection of the prize-winner will be made by the Thoracic Surgery Committee with the President of EACTS as ex-officio. The winner of the Prize will be announced during the Annual Meeting.
On completion of the Prize-funded activities, the prize-winner is required to send a written report to the Secretary General presenting the knowledge and experience gained during the year including any published work. He/she should also report on the potential of disseminating new knowledge within the department to which he/she is returning.
