The ANZCP recognises the importance of contributions to our profession and the development and education of the next generation.
Syd Yarrow Award
Sponsored by LivaNova
Founded in 1993, this award was named to recognise the outstanding contribution of Syd Yarrow to the perfusion profession over his long career. It is awarded to a student member of the Society who has made the best presentation at its Annual Scientific Meeting. The purpose is to encourage high standards of professional activity and educational development in perfusion students.
The award takes the form of a grant of funds to assist in costs associated with the recipient visiting cardiac centres in Australasia or overseas to further perfusion education.
Since 1990 the Terumo Corporation has committed funds to recognise and encourage the growing professionalism of Australasian perfusionists. This had been in the form of a trip to the Pathophysiology and Techniques of Cardiopulmonary Bypass Symposium held in San Diego USA in February each year. In 1995, the conditions were broadened to allow the recipient to attend any perfusion-related conference in Europe or North America.
Initially awarded for the best paper published in the Society Journal, since 1992 it has recognised the best scientific paper presented by a clinical perfusionist at the ANZCP Annual Scientific Meeting. The winner is decided by a panel of judges (ANZCP full members) who take into account original content, scientific accuracy, conclusions and overall presentation. The award is open to full members of the ANZCP.
The Terumo Award is in recognition of the best scientific or clinical paper presented by a full ANZCP member.
