Trainee Presentation Awards

The CSPT Trainee Presentation Award is presented annually to CSPT trainees in clinical or basic pharmacology for an excellent oral or poster presentation at the CSPT annual meeting. A maximum of four awards are available annually.


$400 CAD cash prize and engraved plaque


1. Award candidates must be CSPT members in good standing at the time of abstract submission and at the time of award presentation.

2. Trainees may only enter one presentation in either the oral or poster presentation competition.


The abstract submission deadline is March 9, 2018


Trainees in good standing who submit an abstract to the CSPT annual meeting will automatically be considered for the trainee presentation awards. Non-member trainees that apply for society membership at the time of abstract submission will also be eligible upon membership approval.
