The Career Accomplishment Award is given to honor an outstanding scholar with extraordinary contributions to the field of epidemiology, or an individual whose work has had a profound impact on epidemiology and shifted the way we practice epidemiology. Career accomplishment and leadership impact on the field are core criteria that are used for selection of the annual awardee.
Candidates must be nominated by at least one SER member. Self-nomination will not be accepted. Multiple nominations do not increase the likelihood of being awarded. In the case of multiple nominations for a single candidate, submitters will be contacted to coordinate a joint nomination.
The award winner will receive complimentary meeting registration to SER’s Annual meeting, travel funds reimbursement up to the amount of $2,000, and be invited to give a scientific presentation at the Annual Meeting.
Note: Funds are only available for travel reimbursement to attend the meeting. If the individual is unable to attend the meeting, they may still be named as the award winner, but the funds will not be disbursed to the individual as they are for travel reimbursement only.
