  • Provide mentorship and education to enable residents to successfully match in a FPMRS fellowship and advance their early personal and professional development
  • Create a network among recipients and leaders in AUGS for life-long career development and support


  • Any obstetrics and gynecology or urology resident who at time of meeting is not in their first or last year of residency. Applicants must be from an accredited residency program in the US or Canada.
  • Self-nominations are encouraged

Nominations are closed for 2023.
