The D.S. Rosengarten Surgical Trainee Research Prize was established in 1985. The 2014 Symposium, 30th in the series, was very successful with 12 presenters. A vascular registrar, Chris Brooks, won the prize, for his presentation, "Smoking increases postoperative respiratory complications and unplanned return to Theate in vascular surgical patients". Emma Sim and Georgina Stephens received honourable mentions.

Mrs Candice Rosengarten, widow of David Rosengarten and creator of the prize, attended and presented the prize. Mr Stewart Skinner chaired the symposium. J&J Medical sponsored the $1000 prize money. Feedback from presenters, adjudicators and audience was very positive.
