The award will be given to an international ATS member who has made outstanding contributions to any one of the following arenas:

  • Investigating clinical, translational, or laboratory-based research topics relevant to Clinical Problems
  • Mentoring, training, and guiding junior pulmonary/critical care medicine individuals and/or colleagues in research or clinical care
  • Educating, teaching, or supporting training of individuals from any background (RN, RT, MD, PhD, etc.) who work in pulmonary/critical care medicine

This award is to recognize an individual at any phase of their career. We encourage nomination of diverse nominees, including but not limited to gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, country, area of focus, and primary occupation.

NOTE: International applicants are also welcome to apply to any other ATS Clinical Problems Awards in addition to this award. The ATS defines “international” as someone who does not reside in North America.

Award Presentation:

Awardees will be presented with a framed certificate during the annual CP Membership Meeting at the ATS International Conference, during the Clinical Problems business meeting, at which time the Chair of the Clinical Problems Assembly and Planning Committee chair will jointly present the award to the awardee. The awardee will have the opportunity to speak about what this award means to them. Awardees will also be announced on ATS platforms including the website and social media accounts. A letter of recognition and contribution will also be sent to the designated institutional leader.

NOTE: If an awardee is unable to attend the ATS International Conference, the unframed certificate will be mailed to the awardee. A pre-recorded video recording or written remarks can be delivered on behalf of the awardee at the ATS International Conference.
