2021 Resident Excellence Award Nomination Period Opens January 29, 2021
“I would want to pass along my sincere gratitude and say thank you. ASCRS is my favorite meeting not just because of what happens on the stage, but also off. Being able to take part as a resident was an amazing experience. Residency can be a grind and receiving that “good job” and pat on the back from those that have come before us really fills the tank”
