The Dlin/Fischer Award is presented for significant achievement in clinical research and the best paper submitted for presentation at the annual meeting. There is no application or nomination procedure for the award. Rather, individuals who submit the top-rated abstracts are invited to submit a paper to vie for the award.
The award is named for Barney M. Dlin, MD, FAPM (APM president 1983-84) and H. Keith Fischer, MD, FAPM (APM president 1975-76), corroborators on many research projects and papers.
