Tideswell Geriatrics Scholarship Award Summit Winners

Tideswell and the UCSF Division of Geriatrics are excited to announce the fifth annual Geriatrics Scholarship Award Summit open to ACGME interns and residents in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine. The goal of the Award is to stimulate interest in a career in academic geriatrics by recognizing residents’ scholarly or research achievements in aging or geriatrics. Each award carries with it a cash prize of $250 plus a stipend to cover travel and lodging in San Francisco to present their work at a special award summit. This year’s winners are:
