The APA Ethics SIG is a group of individuals with an interest in the application of ethical theory in the context of clinical work, research, and teaching. It is a venue for sharing views and concerns about the impact of ethics in these settings in order to promote advances in physician ethics and professionalism.
The first APA Ethics Special Interest Group (SIG) Essay Contest.
The contest is open to all pediatric residents and pediatric subspecialty fellows (including pediatric surgical fellows). Essays should focus on the ethical issues that residents and fellows face while caring for patients. Topics may include but are not limited to personal narratives of ethical dilemmas faced in training or practice or scholarly presentations of issues related to organizational, interprofessional or global health ethics.
Essays should be between 800 to 1600 words. Essays longer than 1700 words will be disqualified without review. Essays must be original and unpublished works. If there are multiple authors, the award will be shared. All co-authors should provide demographic information (training status) and role in manuscript preparation.
Two awards will be offered:
1st Place - $200
2nd Place - $100
The winning essays will be read at the PAS meeting in Boston and will be published in the APA website as part of Ethics SIG newsletter in June 2012. If the resident or fellow will be attending PAS in Boston they may present their paper themselves.
Deadline: March 10, 2012
Submit essays to: firstname.lastname@example.org
