Dr. Brian W. Goodacre Memorial Award for Interventional Radiology
The Dr. Brian W. Goodacre Memorial Award for Interventional Radiology will be awarded annually to a PGY 2-5 resident in the UBC Department of Radiology for the best research project in the field of interventional radiology and will be presented at the Annual Resident Research Day.
The prize will be awarded to the resident who has the highest cumulative score on his/her presentation, which is based on excellence in scientific design, clear presentation of data, validity of discussion, and clarity of oral presentation, as determined by a panel of three judges. Interventional Radiology topics could include vascular and non-vascular topics, or advanced biopsy techniques. The prize will support the cost of travel and accommodation in the presentation of the winning research project at a scientific meeting such as that of the ‘Society of Interventional Radiology’.
Please help to establish the award
With the support of the radiology profession throughout BC and Dr. Goodacre’s classmates, this award will be endowed so that it can be awarded to deserving students in perpetuity.
Please make a gift to support the award, or join together with your colleagues to make a group gift. Gifts of $5000 or more will be recognized at Research Day and in the ‘Excitations’ newsletter. Individual donations can be counted towards a group gift and will receive tax-receipts.
Your gift will help to continue Dr. Goodacre’s legacy at UBC and beyond, and will support current and future radiologists working in his field.
