SUSP Albert J Glass Award

COL "Al" Glass used his observations during WWII to help change the perception of psychological stress in combat during the Korean War.  He went on to develop the concepts of proximity, immediacy, simplicity and expectancy: a cornerstone of military psychiatry.  Widely published, Dr Glass represents the best of military psychiatry.

The Al Glass Award is presented annually to an active duty military resident or fellow whose original research manuscript is judged to make the most meaningful contribution to military psychiatry.

The award is presented during the annual SUSP meeting, which occurs in conjunction with the APA's annual meeting in May. The winner also receives his or her choice of airfare to the annual meeting or a $500 book stipend.

Applicants are allowed assistance from faculty members, but the manuscript should be primarily authored by the resident/fellow. In judging submissions, military relevance is the most heavily-weighted criterion and original research manuscripts often earn higher scores compared to case reports or reviews.

The deadline each year is 1 March. The application process is now open!
